Hitler Book Off-Limits

November 18, 1999|Greg Miller

Responding to entreaties from the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center, Internet bookseller Amazon.com said it will no longer sell Adolf Hitler's autobiographical manifesto "Mein Kampf" in Germany. Amazon's German Web site has never sold the German-language version of the book, which is outlawed in that country. But until now, German consumers could order English copies from Amazon's U.S. Web site. Seattle-based Amazon said it decided the legality of that practice was "uncertain enough" to cease such shipments. Amazon continues to sell the book outside Germany.
