Russia bans 1950s-era book about Hitler by U.K. historian: report

A history book about Adolf Hitler has been banned in Russia because it includes quotes insulting to Russians and Jews, according to a report.

Prosecutors said Tuesday that a Russian court has banned the 1953 book Hitler’s Table Talk: 1941-1944 by British historian Hugh Trevor-Roper. The book collects Hitler’s opinions on a wide range of topics.

According to Reuters, prosecutors found that the book included statements from the Nazi leader that are of “an anti-Slavic and anti-Semitic character.”

I’m not sure what’s worse, the fact that they’re banning books in the first place or that it took them 55 years to figure out that a book full of Hitler quotes might have a few unkind things to say about all those people he tried to have killed.
