Mein Kampf re-release

It feels really strange that it will be possible that this book will be re-released, but at least it is to be hoped that it will be an annotated version:

Adolf Hitler's autobiography "Mein Kampf" is to be republished in Germany in 2015 for the first time since being banned under the country's constitution at the end of the Second World War.

Under the post-1945 German constitution, the dissemination of Nazi philosophy has been a crime punishable by fines and imprisonment.

But the copyright, held by the state of Bavaria where the Nazi movement began life in the 1920s, expires in 2015, 70 years after the death of its author in his Berlin bunker.

I remember that one lady I worked for had an inherited original copy of "Mein Kampf". She constantly ridiculed the book, pointing out some passages where Rudolf Heß (who wrote down the dictations of Hitler) had abbreviated some passages of Hitler's rants with "etc. etc."
