Apple removes Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ e-book from the iTunes App Store

Tue, Nov 10, 2009


Last Friday, a Spanish translation of Hitler’s Mein Kampf made its way onto the iTunes App Store as an e-book.  Even more perplexing was that the apps icon was a front and center picture of a swastika.  We wrote on the topic last week:

Now how in the world did Apple’s app store review team ever let this one through?  Mein Kampf was written by Hitler in 1923 and is part autobiographical and partly explains Hitler’s hateful political ideology.  It’s naturally filled with a plethora of racist content and it’s pretty mind boggling that Apple’s app store censors let this one slide through.

Since then, Apple has removed the app from iTunes.
