AntiFa-mediaFar-Right Movements Across Europe Are Making Hitler Popular Again • Africanglobe.net – The unsettling auction comes amid a concerning surge in the far-right across Europe. A toxic combination of economic instability and the worst refugee crisis since World War II has seen the resurgence of the dangerous ideology across the continent, from Athens to Austria — and most places in between. Last week, an Italian newspaper was heavily criticised after publishing Adolf Hitler’s political manifesto, Mein Kampf (My Struggle). Conservative Milan daily, Il Giornale, gave the book free to those who purchased the newspaper and is also publishing volumes exploring Third Reich history. The situation is more unnerving in Germany. Considering the spike in xenophobic attacks against refugees in Western Europe’s most populous nation, Hitler’s political treatise has not only made a comeback, but has also become a bestseller. By April, the new academically-annotated version of the ultra-nationalist, anti-semitic treatise made its way onto Germany’s influential Spiegel bestseller list, where it remained for several weeks. Although many bookshops do not have the book on display and order it by request only, it now stands in 14th place.
