Mein Kampf (German for "My Struggle") is the first book written by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, while he was imprisoned in Landsberg Prison in 1924. In it, he detailed his political and antisemitic ideology and Nazi worldview. (Already in Mein Kampf Hitler wrote about his satanic conspiracy against the Jewish people - "The Jews, the instigators of the destruction of the nation, must be brought under poison gas". A satanic wish that he implemented in practice during the atrocious Holocaust years). Until 1930, only a few thousand copies were sold each year. The success of the Nazis in the elections held on October 13, 1930 brought him some popularity, and by 1932 already 80,000 copies of the book were sold. After Hitler rose to power, millions of copies of the book were sold. In 1933 alone, 1.5 million copies were sold, and from 1936 a popular edition was given as a gift to every couple married in Nazi Germany. By the end of the war, about ten million copies had been sold in Germany, and several more million copies worldwide. Due to the high sales of the book, Hitler waived his Chancellor's salary and subsisted on the royalties he earned from the book.
