All Profits From Sales Of “Mein Kampf” Will Go To Holocaust Survivors

In recent years, Adolf Hitler’s notorious and highly controversial book Mein Kampf has brought in over $20,000. Recognizing this, U.S. publishing house Houghton Mifflin Harcout, based in Boston, has decided to donate the proceeds from the autobiography to local Holocaust survivors.

The Boston Globe reports that the aim is to make amends for the atrocities Hitler created, as well as inspired in following years.

The publisher is establishing an ongoing multi-year grant which will distribute the profits raised from Mein Kampft to the Jewish Family & Children’s Service in Waltham, Massachusetts. “Our intention has always been for these funds to have a positive impact,” said Andrew Russell, the director of corporate social responsibility.

Reportedly, the Boston-based publisher received criticism for donating its profits to organizations promoting tolerance that were not Holocaust-specific, which is why the change was made.

Before WWII, Hitler’s autobiography was a bestseller in Germany. After the war, however, the local government of Bavaria, which owned the copyright, forbade its publication. Its message may not be delightful, but the work has historical value.

For this reason, a new edition of the Nazi dictator’s book entered the public domain in Germany this year. In addition, historians released an annotated version of the manifesto, which sold out at a rapid pace.

The atrocities which took place during the Holocaust cannot be undone, but at least moving forward, sales of Hitler’s controversial book may help enrich lives.
