Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda and Enlightenment, inaugurating “German Book Week,” said of Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”: “This book, the work of a prisoner, written on a small table in a prison cell has become the best-seller of all times. Chancellor Hitler, the greatest orator of the national socialist revolution, is also its greatest writer. His speeches marked the beginning of the revolution, but his book will fix its history for future generations.”
