In the centre of the Bebelplatz in Berlin, a glass window sits in the ground showing a room below filled with row upon row of empty bookshelves. This memorial commemorates a dark night on the 10th of May in 1933 when around 20,000 “anti-German” books were burned here by the nationalist German Student Association (though the event was also attended by members of the Nazi Students’ League, the SA, the SS and Hitler Youth groups, as well as the Reich Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels).
A nearby plaque bears a line from Heinrich Heine’s 1821 play, Almansor: "That was only a prelude; where they burn books, they will in the end also burn people".
An interesting but rarely mentioned fact is that most of the content burned that night came from the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft (which is variously translated as Institute of Sex Research, Institute of Sexology, Institute for Sexology or Institute for the Science of Sexuality) headed by Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. The Institute and Hirshfeld himself were some of the first to openly campaign for the right to have sex with someone of the same gender, the right to transition if you did not identify with your birth sex and for the general acceptance of queer people. They had already performed the first SRS operations in Germany and in addition, the Institute advocated sex education, contraception, the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases and women’s emancipation.
Photographs of the night of the book burning are plastered across history books around the world, but the queer movement that was destroyed that night regularly goes unmentioned.
Welp I know what I’m doing for the rest of the night
