Court clears publishers of Hitler speeches

A court in Brno has cleared the publishers of Adolf Hitler’s speeches of charges of propagating Nazism. The regional court on Friday upheld the verdict of a court in Brno issued in September last year, which found no evidence that the collection of Hitler’s speeches promoted the Nazi ideology. Two co-owners of a Brno-based publishing house, Guidemedia, and an editor faced up to ten years in jail on charges of propagating Nazism. The book, which was released in 2012, consists of 18 addresses delivered by the Nazi dictator between 1939 and 1942.
