Burning Pro-German Books
Education; Book Burning; WWI; Violence
This letter was a reply to an earlier demand to remove all possible pro-German propaganda from public libraries. It defended the loyalty of the library itself, and asserted that the current librarian had burned most of the pro-German books the previous June. It also stated that the current librarian would continue their work finding and destroying disloyal books as long as necessary.
