An Italian newspaper has published Hitler’s political manifesto Mein Kampf, angering Italy’s premier and the country’s tiny Jewish community.

The conservative Milan daily Il Giornale gave the book free to whoever purchased the newspaper and first instalment of William Shirer’s The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

The daily is publishing volumes exploring Third Reich history and defended its decision in its Saturday edition by arguing that reading Mein Kampf is the “true antidote to the toxins of national socialism”.
