Bookstore Hitler – A bookstore in the town of Huddersfield in the UK is in hot water after promoting a Hitler book for Christmas calling it the perfect present. The book is called Mein Kampf and is the manifesto of Adolph Hitler.
Now Waterstone’s bookstore is issuing an apology after receiving several complaints saying that it carried anti-semitic tones. A spokesperson said that, “The book should not be stocked in any politics section, and our Huddersfield branch should not have used inappropriate seasonal stickers on the book.”
The spokesperson continued, “We have instructed stores accordingly, and apologize for the offence caused. We will also communicate with all our branches at the earliest possible opportunity to remind them of the sensitivities surrounding our stocking of Mein Kampf.”
The Waterstone bookstore is not the only store receiving heat over the book. A Virgin Megastore in Qatar after a Twitter pic was released by an American executive of the book being listed on the stores recommended reading list. The Virgin store has since removed it from its shelves.
The Hitler dictated book was published in 1925, which he did while in prison for what he called “political crimes.” In the book he indicates that he believes there was a Jewish conspiracy to gain world leadership.
