Hmmm... so if it was definitely a white copy of Mein Kampf that was given to the male..... what is the book this guy is holding!?
Looks like a prayer book or bible,or maybe his little black book because he looks like he found a keeper!
I have a copy of this book too, and I wanted to know if anyone can translate the names, and tell me what that stamp is from (the lower left ss and eagle stamp) Is that someone's signature? My wife's grandfather was a paratrooper and got this book from Germany in WWII. Any info is appreciated. Thanks

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
