Yeah, the History Channel is no longer into history, because that stuff is all in the past.  They're into new stuff, like the Nazis getting together with aliens and building flying saucers, but, still manage to lose the war, for some reason.  That has a little history, but, not too much, so that's OK.  They working on a Nazi ghosts, Genghis Khan's ghost, and aliens in flying saucers, attempting to escape from a mega-hurricane hitting a mega-volcano, while a mega-tsunami come from the other direction thing, but, that's still months off.

olddinosaur: I passed up a chance to buy a 1938 gold leaf mint condition Mein Kampf for $58.00 when I was in Germany in 1970.

It would be worth about $4500 today, very few copies have survived.

In addition, I have read the book cover to cover, something very few people have done---I had to be shamed into it, I met a dropout who had finished it after I had tried and put it down six times.

It is the work iof an extremely disorganized mind, but it bears a strong resemblance to what I hear today from the librtards, more frequently than the right wingnuts.

Dafatone: CSB time:

I was in the rare book room of Colorado University's library for a class project.  The librarian there showed us some of their extra rare things in a protective glass case.

First was a folio of Shakespeare's.  Then a letter by Emily Dickinson.  Next was a book with a small autograph.  As I leaned in to read what it was, the librarian told us it was an autographed copy of Mein Kampf.

I got the hell out of there.  Immediately.  I get the historical value of it, but it was just farking creepy.
