'Mein Kampf' Big Seller In Germany After It's Allowed To Be Published Again

Adolf Hitler’s book "Mein Kampf" is allowed to be published in Germany again, and the publisher says it’s surprised by how many copies it’s sold.

This version is described as an academic one, and it’s heavily annotated — it also has a plain white cover rather than the photo of Hitler that appeared on Nazi-era copies.

With me to talk about this is Volker Benkert. He’s an assistant professor of history at ASU and specializes in modern German history. He was also born in Germany and is a dual-citizen.

Benkert talks about what he makes of that fact that this book has become a pretty big seller in Germany.
