The Book Thieves
The Book Thieves The Nazi Looting of Europe's Libraries and the Race to Return A Literary Inheritance By Rydell, Anders Book - 2017

The image of Nazis as anti-intellectual cultural vandals has been persistent, possibly to some degree because it is easy to comprehend, and possibly because we would like to see literature and the written word as fundamentally good. But even the Nazis realized that if there was something that gave more power than merely destroying the word, it was owning and controlling it. There was a power in books.
