Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler’s book on his political ideology and plans for Germany, has been republished in Germany following a decades-long ban, Press TV reported.

Hitler’s political testament hit the bookshops in Germany on Friday, for the first time in 70 years.

Since World War II, the Allies had refused to allow the republication of the banned book in Germany out of respect for the war victims and to prevent the incitement of hatred among Germans against non-Germans.

Mein Kampf, which translates as My Struggle, outlines Hitler’s ideology, which formed the basis for Nazism.

Hitler wrote the semi-autobiographical, which would become the manifesto for the burgeoning National Socialist Party, in 1924, while he was imprisoned in Bavaria for treason.

The book, which depicts life as a struggle, details the racist ideas of Hitler who believed in racial hierarchy and asserted the superiority of the Aryan race as the Herrenvolk (master race), as opposed to the non-Aryan Untermenschen (sub-humans), which included all “people of color” as the inferior races.

The book advocates Nazi militarism stating that, “Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.”
