EUROPE - Jews welcome first annotated 'Mein Kampf' in Germany It may be true, that 'Mein Kampf" was available before. But only to a very small group of people who - let's say - download it via Internet illegaly. It was not available to a wider audience because of the publishing rights held by Bavarian state and Bavaria's stance of not printing the book. Now it will be available in Bookstores as the "property right" held by Bavaria is ending. From censorship to common knowledge.
