Behind the Page... May Day
May Day celebrations in Europe are reminiscent of Valentine's Day celebrations in the U.S.; it is traditionally considered a "romantic" holiday. In May of 1933, the Nazi Party coordinated massive book-burning "celebrations" to commemorate May Day. Books written by Jews or anyone else whose writings were counter to Nazi ideals were burned.
