Russia bans historian's book about Hitler
According to Reuters, prosecutors found that the book included statements from the Nazi leader that are of "an anti-Slavic and anti-Semitic character."
The book will be added to a list of titles banned in Russia. Owning or distributing any volume on the list is illegal.
Trevor-Roper, who died in 2003, was an Oxford professor and a noted historian. During the Second World War, he worked for the British intelligence services and, after the war, investigated the circumstances surrounding Hitler's death.
