— The Book Burning Memorial

In the centre of Bebelplatz, a glass window showing rows and rows of empty bookshelves. The memorial commemorates the night in 1933 when 20,000 ‘anti-German’ books were burned here under the instigation of Goebbels. There’s a plaque nearby that says ‘Where they burn books, they will also burn humans in the end.’
