Nazi Book Burnings

A weird glow illuminated Opera Square in Berlin, Germany as students, garbed in the costumes of their corps, threw a thousand torches on the bonfire, then seized "un-German" books from trucks and hurled them into the blaze amid cheers, May 10, 1933. The writings of some of Germany's best known authors, as well as many of other lands, such as Helen Keller, Jack London, Franz Boas, were consigned to the flames. (AP Photo)
