Bebelplatz — square in Berlin, notorious after the events of May 10, 1933, when 20 thousand"anti-German" books were burned here (even students and staff of the Humboldt University participated in the burning). Among the books were works Marx, Freud, Remarque, Brecht, Hasek, Dreiser and other significant scientists and writers from both Germany and abroad.
