    Given that it was published 15 years before the occupation of France, I'd imagine that the French knew the gist of the content even if they hadn't read it themselves. Also, since the Germans did little to endear themselves to the French during the occupation, I don't imagine that the content of Mein kampf would have made much of a difference towards the French view of their invaders. – Steve Bird Jan 24 '16 at 11:18

    @Anixx "Is it true that..." questions are usually a good fit for skeptics.stackexchange.com - if you can still find the website with that claim in your browser history. – Philipp Jan 24 '16 at 11:33

    @MarkC.Wallace: Must say that noting interesting is appearing in my top ten or even twenty results - what does Google know about your search patterns that are not true of mine? ;-) – Pieter Geerkens Jan 24 '16 at 23:47

    Is your question whether it was prohibited, or was that a fact, and the question is whether the motivation you've described is correct? Or both? – rolfedh Jan 25 '16 at 0:54
