(Chosun) North Korean leader Kim Jong-un handed out copies of Adolf Hitler’s memoir “Mein Kampf” to department chiefs of the Workers Party’s Central Committee on his birthday on Jan. 8, an anti-regime website said Tuesday.

The book is among a special selection of the world’s 100 best classic books according to the tastes of the Kim family, New Focus quoted an informed source as saying. New Focus is run by Jang Jin-song, a North Korean poet who used to work at the Workers Party’s United Front Department before defecting to the South.
