A new edition of Adolf Hitler’s autobiography Mein Kampf is set to go on sale in Germany next month for the first time since his death.

The latest version of the Nazi leader’s notorious manifesto contains almost 2,000 more pages than the original and includes critical commentary, the Associated Press reports. Each new copy will cost about $64, or 59 euros, when it hits shelves.

Reprinting Mein Kampf (My Struggle) has been banned in Germany since the end of World War II, but the copyright under the country’s law expires at the end of the year, 70 years after an author’s death, AP reports. Hitler committed suicide in Berlin as the Soviet army closed in on April 30, 1945.

The new edition is being produced and printed by the Munich-based Institute for Contemporary History.
