75th Anniversary of Nazi Book Burning

May 10th marks the 75th anniversary of perhaps the most infamous book burning ever. On May 10, 1933, Nazis burned thousands of books banned by Germany's National Socialist regime on the orders of Joseph Goebbels, Minister for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda. AbeBooks is observing the anniversary with an interesting article along with interviews with three authorities on book burning.
