Remembering Hard Times!


Book Burning Memorial

Book Burning Memorial in Frankfurt, Germany

This plaque in the main square in Frankfurt, is a commemoration of a large book burning ceremony that took place here (and in many other parts of Germany) in May 1933, when thousands of books, believed to be “un German” were burned by the German Union of Students who supported Naziism.   Today, this plaque is a sad reminder of one of the consequences of war.

    Students burned books! Youth can be easily manipulated.
