A Book Burning Ceremony in Nazi Germany

On May 10th, 1933, university students and German citizens burned 25,000 volumes of books deemed ‘un-German’, as nationalist students marched in torchlight parades “against the un-German spirit.” The scripted rituals called for high Nazi officials, professors, rectors, and student leaders to address the participants and spectators. At the meeting places, students threw the pillaged and unwanted books into the bonfires with great joyous ceremony, band-playing, songs, “fire oaths,” and incantations.
