The burning of books / Bücherverbrennungen

Bookburnings the world over.
As Heinrich Heine is quoted:
"Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings." (German: "Dort, wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen.")—Heinrich Heine, from his play Almansor (1821)

And today in the USA:
A book (Fahrenheit 451) about the banning of books is under fire

Harry Potter is bad for you

Never take your kids to a museum or on a stroll along lake Zurich or on a trip to Rome, it's bad for them.

And today I was aproached here in Zurich by two suit&tie Americans who wanted to talk about their religion.....
