“One year after the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia (and a full year before the New York Times decided it was a good idea to publish an excerpt from Der Führer’s poisonous opus), celebrated writer, literary critic, and vocal opponent of totalitarianism George Orwell (who was born 107 years ago today) reviewed Mein Kampf.

He was, as you can imagine, not a fan.”
