What sort of person buys a signed copy of Mein Kampf?

Whale Oil blogs:

Two rare early editions of Mein Kampf, signed by could sell for more than US$20,000 (NZ$24k) at an online auction, officials say.

Whale comments:

Check the back of the couch and see if you have a spare $24k.

But seriously what sort of sicko wants to own a book by Adolf Hitler. Only a nazi sympathiser could possibly want such a thing.

I think you have to be either genuinely unaware of what happened to millions of people during WWII under the rule of Nazi Germany, or you have to have a very specific personality fault to think that stuff is cool.

I agree. It is one thing to want to read Mein Kampf. It gives an insight into the mentality of the Nazis. But to want a copy personally signed by Hitler – that is rather sick.
