"Where they burn books, they will also in the end burn human beings" - Heine

My fellow students, German men and women, the era of exaggerated Jewish intellectualism is now at an end.

So Josef Goebbels told a crowd of fascists in the notorious burning of at least 20,000 books at Berlin's Opernplatz, one of more than 30 book-burning ceremonies that took place in German cities in 1933. The Berlin bonfire was 75 years ago this weekend.

The site where the event occurred is now called August Bebel Platz, and Stan Persky, with whom I enjoyed a long conversation only last week, was there, for the commemoration.

Stan's report is here.

Unfortunately, and to my shame, we have some of it here lately.

The shitbags.
