An Italian newspaper has been giving out free copies of Hitler’s Mein Kampf as part of an apparent sales drive. But Il Giornale claimed the idea, described by the country’s PM Matteo Renzi as “squalid”, was a bid to “educate readers about the evils of Nazism”.
Distribution of the infamous book has been banned in Europe since the end of World War II. But this was lifted in January when the copyrights expired.
