Mr Dotcom told New Zealand media that he had developed an interest in WWII through playing the highy popular computer game “Call of Duty”.

Hitler wrote the in the 1920s during a period of imprisonment. Mr Dotcom says the book is an investment and that he bought works by other leaders from the WWII period including Churchill and Stalin.

But the New Zealand Jewish Council is not impressed with Mr Dotcom’s possession. President Stephen Goodman told J-Wire: “He has just  political party to contest this year’s election.  Now he has admitted to having a signed early copy of Mein Kampf from which he expects to make a profit.

The New Zealand Jewish Council has always been opposed to people profiting from the suffering of others.  People will be offended by this action and stating it with such pride from such a high profile position shows great disrespect to those who suffered under the Nazi regime as well as the New Zealand soldiers who fought and died to rid the world of this tyranny.  While this ownership is legal in New Zealand is morally unacceptable.”

Kim Dotcom who founded file sharing web site Megupload is fighting extradition attempts by the the USA where he is wanted for questioning on copyright infringement.
