Mein Kampf (translated as My Struggle) is an autobigraphical manifesto published by Hitler in two parts in 1925 and 1926. Both parts published together in 1930 with addtional editing.

On Hitler's birthday in 1940, Hans Hubermann Jr., after criticizing Lisel's books, rants that Liesel Meminger should be reading Mein Kampf. 

The book also serves as an inconspicuous way to transport Max Vandenburg a house key to the Hubermann home, and to act as a prop to divert suspicion while Max traveled.

The Word Shaker and The Standover Man were both written on painted over pages from Max's copy of Mein Kampf.
