TD: volume 13, issue 2016, 1, page 11–44


Es folgt die Zusammenfassung in englischer Sprache following the article short description

This contribution is dedicated to the international distribution and reception of Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” prior to 1945. Apart from the Allied states of World War II, also the Arab countries are dealt with, as well as India, Italy, Japan, China and the Vatican. Apart from the publication history of the book, also the question of its interpretation in the various states is pursued. The idea that the book was a result of the radical atmosphere of the early 1920s and was no longer to be taken seriously in the 1930s was contradicted by solemn warnings that the Reich’s Chancellor, Adolf Hitler, would unswervingly keep to the goals formulated in “Mein Kampf”.
