Nazi soldiers burning books in a street fire in 1933 – Daily Mail


Kenneth Baker’s account of books burnt down the ages ‘for political, religious or personal reasons’ is frighteningly pertinent and apposite. The arrest and suspension of teachers and academics in Turkey, the open contempt for ‘intellectuals’ shown by Donald Trump, the pervasive philistinism in this country: there is a growing worldwide indifference towards thought and culture, things most people are never comfortable with and never seem to need or want. How better to demonstrate this than by burning books?
