What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 20 in a series – “Fascist squads made bonfires of socialist books in Italy.”

“Joseph Goebbels declared at a book-burning ceremony in Berlin on May 10, 1933, that “the age of extreme Jewish intellectualism has now ended, and the success of the German revolution has again given the right of way to the German spirit.” 42 Though Mussolini and his avant-garde artist friends worried less than the Nazis about cultural modernism, Fascist squads made bonfires of socialist books in Italy.”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
