Quick Takes

$34,900 for 'Mein Kampf'

August 14, 2009|Associated Press

More than 80 years after it was first published -- and later outlawed -- in Germany, a signed copy of Adolf Hitler's infamous manifesto "Mein Kampf" was sold Thursday for $34,900.

The semi-autobiographical work outlining Hitler's anti-Semitic ideology was sold to an anonymous telephone bidder at an auction in the town of Ludlow in western England.

Written in 1924 while Hitler was serving a four-year prison term in the southern German region of Bavaria, the book was first published in 1926.
