"It is wonderful that even today, with all the competition of radio, television, films, and records, the book has kept its precious character. A book is somehow sacred. A dictator can kill and maim people, can sink to any kind of tyranny and only be hated. But when books are burnt the ultimate in tyranny has happened. This we cannot forgive."
