Hitler’s Mein Kampf – level 2

15-01-2016 07:00

“Mein Kampf” or “My Struggle” is a book which Adolf Hitler wrote in 1925. At the end of World War Two, Germany banned the book.

After 90 years, people republished the book, and now you could buy the 2,000-page work last Friday.

Before the republishing, scholars worked on the book. They worked for three years. This edition of Mein Kampf comes with over 3,500 critical comments.

People’s reactions to the book are mixed. One concentration camp survivor is shocked. Another person thinks that it is a way to learn from the mistakes of the past.

Difficult words: struggle (to fight), ban (to make something illegal), scholar (an expert).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
