Kim Jong Un hands out Hitler's Mein Kampf to senior North Korean officials


Senior government officials in North Korea were given copies of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf for Kim Jong Un’s birthday in January, it has been revealed.

The highly controversial act was uncovered by New Focus International, a North Korean news organization.

The infamous Nazi tome was distributed in a limited edition, called 'a one-hundred copy book' in North Korea.

According to the report, the book was not reprinted because of its racist and anti-Semitic messages, but to specifically focus on Hitler’s plans for economic recovery after World War One.

A North Korean source told New Focus that Kim gave a speech endorsing Germany’s inter-war revival and encouraging officials to read the book.

'Kim Jong Un gave a lecture to high-ranking officials, stressing that we must pursue the policy of Byungjin (which translates to the word 'tandem') in terms of nuclear and economic development,' the government source said.

'Mentioning that Hitler managed to rebuild Germany in a short time following its defeat in World War One, Kim Jong Un issued an order for the Third Reich to be studied in depth and asked that practical applications be drawn from it.'

The gifting took place at the leader's birthday party on January 8.
