    Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf," will be available in German bookstores more than 70 years after his death.

    More than 70 years after his death, Adolf Hitler's notorious manifesto is set to go back on sale in German bookstores, NBC News reported. 

    Historians are readying a new, annotated edition of the Nazi leader's "Mein Kampf" which will be released in January. The Munich-based Institute of Contemporary History (IFZ) — a government-funded research institution — plans to publish it once the copyright to the text expires at the end of the year.

    It will feature a total of 3,700 comments providing analysis on its content — which doubles the number of pages of the original version. 

    IFZ's Christian Hartmann told NBC News Hitler's "800-page book is in great parts anti-Semitic" and "full of allusions and assertions, which are difficult to understand in the 21st century," which is why every sentence will be explained and critically evaluated in the upcoming edition.
