(Fox News) As Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" enjoys a disturbing second act as a wildly popular e-book, Jewish activists are appealing to publishers to mute Adolf Hitler's manifesto with annotations that put its hateful message into historical and humanitarian context.
Originally published in 1925, the 387-page anti-Semitic manifesto on the "Jewish peril" and the Nazi ideology has become a bona fide online sensation, topping Amazon's Propaganda & Political Psychology section as of Thursday for just 99 cents. Elsewhere, two different versions ranked No.12 and No. 15, respectively, in the Politics & Current Events section of the iTunes bookstore as of Wednesday. While such rankings in one of several categories does not make the book a true best-seller, they do indicate a spike in popularity.
