Details

Throughout occupied Europe, the Nazis looted not only art but also books. The Swedish journalist Anders Rydell describes how the shelves of Jews, Communists, Catholics, Freemasons and other opposition groups were pillaged to provide material for Nazi propaganda. He meets the small team of dedicated librarians combing Berlin's public libraries to identify the looted books, and finds himself entrusted with returning a stolen volume to its rightful owner. Off-mint with a felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
