    I really do not recommend reading this book unless you are truly interested in the History of the Book and Jewish literature This is a collection of scholarly articles on various aspects of the treatment of Jewish literary works by the Nazis The efforts of some persons to save documents of great historical and cultural value, and those that died in the effort There is an excellent bibliography.
