When in January 2016 the critical edition of Hitler's inflammatory writing Mein Kampf is published, many libraries have to decide how to deal with it: ignoring or acquiring it, placing it in the open-access department or in the stacks? This article discusses possible options from the point of view of the Magdeburg university library in order to argue in favour of dealing openly and critically with the work, despite all dangers.
