    With an essay by Giuseppe Montesano

    Gathering huge piles of books, dragging them off library shelves, throwing them onto the street and setting them on fire with hatred and fury... What lies behind the fires of book burning? Is it merely an aggressive gesture of censorship, or does it hide deeper impulses? Leo Lowenthal was a direct witness to the Nazi book burnings of May 1933. In this essay, written after his return to Germany at the end of World War Two, he analysed a phenomenon practised from third century BC China to the present day.
