Free distribution of Mein Kampf

President of Italian Jewish communities calls for intervention

(ANSA) - Rome, June 10 - Italian Jews on Friday condemned the planned free distribution of Adolph Hitler's autobiography Mein Kampf (My Battle) together with Saturday's edition of right-wing newspaper Il Giornale.
    "The free distribution...is a squalid fact that is light years away from all logic of studying the Shoah and the different factors that led the whole of humanity to sink into an abyss of unending hatred, death and violence," the president of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities Renzo Gattegna said in a statement. "It must be stated clearly: the Giornale's operation is indecent. And in particular the message must come from those who are called to oversee and intervene concerning the professional ethics of Italian journalists," Gattegna concluded.
