Historic copies of Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" are displayed during the book launch of a new critical edition at the Institut fuer Zeitgeschichte (Institute for Contemporary History) on Jan. 8, 2016 in Munich, Germany. The new edition, which augments Hitler's original text with critical analysis, is the first new publication of the book in Germany since World War II. The state of Bavaria held the copyright to the book and prohibited publication, though the copyright expired on January 1 of this year. Adolf Hitler wrote "Mein Kampf", which is both an autobiography and a presentation of his political views, while he was a prisoner in Germany in the 1920s.
