Miraculously, the famous Nazi book burning in Berlin that claimed 20,000 books was not the work of Nazi agents or soldiers, but that of willing academics.

Today, a monument to remember the event has been erected under the square. If you visit the site and peer down through a sheet of glass, you'll find hundreds of empty book shelves... enough for 20,000 books.
