    The symbolic Nazi manifesto has been prohibited from publishing for more than 70 years. The opponents of the idea to start publishing it again say that it’s potentially dangerous given the rise of anti-Semitic attitudes in Europe, others see the book as a way to study history that shouldn’t be repeated again. Tune in to find out more.

    A new annotated version of the book will be published by Germany’s institute for contemporary history at the end of 2015 when the ban expires.

    The idea has sparked a lot of debate and controversy in German society already.

    Will it become a political hot potato? Looking forward discusses the decision to publish the book with professor Moshe Zimmermann, director of the Richard Koebner Minerva Center for German History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
