Special Offer: Bibliothek Verbrannter Bücher
The burning of books on 10 May 1933 on the Opernplatz in Berlin and in central places in other German cities was the pre-lude to the expulsion and persecution of many authors condemned by the National Socialists. It was a barbaric act, and its effects can still be felt today. In memory of this day, the idea of a Bibliothek Verbrannter Bücher ('Library of Burnt Books') was born.
On the 75th anniversary of the book-burning on 10th May 2008 the first ten titles appeared as a boxed set. Thanks to support from various foundations, a quota of copies could be sent as a gift to some 4000 schools. Now, to the 80th anniversary, we want to offer this boxed set for a special price.
The responsibility for choosing titles rests with the Moses Mendelsohn Zentrum für europäisch-jüdische Studien. The books selected for the collection are complemented by two documentary volumes: Orte der Bücherverbrennungen in Deutschland 1933 and Verfemt und Verboten. Die Vorgeschichte und Folgen der Bücherverbrennungen 1933.
120 titles have been chosen for the whole edition and we hope to publish the next batch soon.
The first 10 volumes:
Each volume 9,80 € (formerly: 12,80 €),
10 volumes as a boxed set: 98,00 € (formerly: 128,00 €)
