Book burning

Post by witness » 06 Nov 2002 20:11

On May 10 1933 Nazis set up the huge bonfires burning up books which they deemed not to be suitable for the Germans to read.
There were many authors who were in the Nazi 'black' lists.
Among them Jack London,Ernest Hemingway Sigmund Freud and others.
Does anybody have any more or less complete lists of the books which were disapproved and consequently burned by the Nazis ?
Thanks.
P.S.I specifically place my question in this section because I consider book burning to be a Crime..

Thank you Hans.
I understand these are only the German authors indicated in the list.
P.S. Also Austrian ones such as Zweig and Hashek

Hi viriato !
I don't see him in the list provided by Hans.

Hi Dan
Have you read "Sea -wolf " by London ?
Very interesting novel where London critisize the Superman (Master race ?) type of thinking.

I got the wonderful collection by London, all leather bound and the nice gold edged pages. Seawolf was a great read, the weakling and intellectual thrown into the face of the strong and brutal personality and physical strength. Of course he overcomes and wins the lady. :)

Jack London's books "Zwangsjacke" (1906) and "Eiserne Ferse" (1906) (english names?) were burned by the Nazis.

Yes.
Besides London was very much in favour of individualism ,of the personal
power and against any blind obedience to the sate characteristic to the Fascits regimes.
Also he was flirting with some Red ideas as far as I remember .
It can be traced in "Martin Iden ".
