Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Essays on the Nazi campaign against the written word.

Book News Annotation:

Authors with direct experience during the Holocaust as well as scholars of Jewish history, English, and library science, explore the meanings behind the destruction of an estimated 100 million books throughout occupied Europe by the Nazi's. Specific topics include Nazi censorship policies, the library of the Vilna ghetto, the confiscation of books from the Sephardic communities in Rome, the experience of reading in the concentration camps, and the uses of fine printing by the Dutch underground. An index would have been helpful.
