The Galloway School is an exclusive and pricey (up to $27,000 tuition) school in Atlanta.

In its summer book club we see this:

Mein Kampf - Abridged VersionISBN: 0984158421
Publication Date: 2009-01-01
For the first time in 65 years, a modern, easy to understand, truly complete and uncensored edition of Mein Kampf has been released which reveals more than any past translation. This hardcover book is also the first translation available in an English language audio format. Older translations altered passages, omitted passages, mistranslated Hitler's words, made some parts more sensational while concealing the true meaning in other parts of the book. If you have read one of these older translations of Mein Kampf, then you have not read the REAL Mein Kampf which is found only in the Ford Translation. Mein Kampf is often portrayed as nothing more than an Anti-Semitic work, however only 6% of it even talks about the Jews. The rest contains Hitler's ideas and beliefs for a greater nation plus his plan on how to accomplish that goal.
He outlines his plans for not only world conquest, but the conquest of the universe. The majority of the work involves Hitler's discussion of the German people's difficult times after the First World War, his political theories and his organization of the Nazi Party, as well as many attacks against his enemies which makes it a very interesting and moving story. Mein Kampf offers an interesting interpretation of politics, people, and foreign policy matters. To characterize it as simply a racist work is to oversimplify its message. Germany did not follow Hitler because he was a racist, they followed him because he promised a great future, and Mein Kampf is where he promised that great future. This edition is the only accurate and complete English translation of Mein Kampf ever made. This Ford Translation offers: 
* The most accurate translation ever produced. 
* Phrases that are translated with precision and with no translator's bias. 
* Uncommon words are replaced with more common and more meaningful terms. 
* Any references to unfamiliar people, or places are explained in the text. 
* This version is complete with all original passages and references restored, including passages omitted from other popular versions. 
This translation has corrected over 1000 errors which were present in past translations. No English reader has been able to appreciate these subtleties in any previous English translation, not until the Ford Translation. Includes Photos and Illustrations of events and people in Mein Kampf Volume I and II Click the order button to receive the book so many people wish to disparage and see why they will do anything to have the printing of this book outlawed. ... 
Read the hardback version, then decide for yourself if he was a mad-man or a genius.
The description is copied and pasted from the book's Amazon page.

The librarian who chose the book writes:
For those of you who may not know, Mein Kampf is Hitler's autobiography.
 I chose this book because I wanted a better understanding of political systems and of the world before WWII. Like many, I am a firm believer in preventing history from repeating itself. I was also intrigued when students had questions about WWII and how it could happen. Those are difficult questions to answer. In our discussion, I would like to examine organizations today that combat hate and how youth can become involved in such efforts.

Even if she has the best of intentions for a critical reading of Mein Kampf, this is not the way to go about it. The description of the book itself on the school site is nothing if not a tribute to Hitler as a genius, and she has no problem with this.

Does she think that students can read this bile over an entire summer and then, after it enters their subconscious thinking, they can then evaluate it fairly in class discussions? To read it before a thorough understanding of what a monster Hitler was is an invitation to create a new generation of marchers in Charlottesville.

And it is beyond imagination that it is acceptable to give kids summer reading that is "only 6%" pure Jew-hatred, with weeks before a teacher can discuss it with them.



UPDATE 2: The translation is apparently not even a good one. The translator wrote a book praising his own translation and then quotes it to prove how great the translation is. Given that this blurb was written by him, it appears that this translation is not academic, but written by a fan of Hitler's, making the choice of this version of Mein Kampf by a high school librarian even more curious.



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
