    Poster, color, 20 x 27.9 in., published by the United States Government Printing Office. Before WWII began, Nazi Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels helped to orchestrate a massive propaganda campaign to gain the cooperation of the German people. Opinions that were contrary to Nazi beliefs were censored or eliminated from the media. The most public demonstration of this censorship occurred on the night of May 10, 1933 in Berlin, Germany. Loyal Nazis raided libraries and bookstores to remove books they thought should not be read by Germans. These books included the works of authors Albert Einstein, Helen Keller, Sigmund Freud and Ernest Hemingway, among others. The books were thrown onto huge bonfires and it is estimated that more than 25,000 books were burned that night. This censorship of ideas in Germany continued throughout WWII.
