I know that the Nazis in early 1933 burned books, musical works, and paintings that they considered "un-German". In particular, Karl Marx's works and those of Voltaire, Locke, and Spinoza, but also musical works written by Mendelssohn, were burned because Marx, Voltaire, Spinoza, and Mendelssohn were of Jewish ancestry (communism and democracy were seen as Jewish inventions by the Nazis). Does anyone have complete lists of books, musical works, and paintings that were blacklisted as "un-German" by the Nazi regime and thus burned at book-burning rallies?
