Hitler royalties – $5,570 a year

 | 

After accepting nearly $140,000 in royalties over 25 years from the sale of “Mein Kampf” by Adolph Hitler, a British charity that aids German refugees from Nazi persecution has stopped taking the royalties, Reuters reported June 20.

The German Welfare Council in London said it had received an average of $5,570 a year since 1976 from British sales of the book, which spells out Hitler’s racist beliefs.

The charity, which has used the money to cover its annual deficit, said it opposed commercial publication of the book.

It said remaining royalties, totaling more than $52,000 and kept in a separate account, had been frozen until a decision is made on what to do with the money, Reuters said.
