Two public protests, driven by very different motives- opposite motives? It seems easy to juxtapose these images for a sort of whipsaw effect, but what jumped out at me was the “Death to Lynchers” sign.

The book burnings were encouraged by Goebbels- in fact, he’s shown speaking at one of them- but they weren’t his idea originally. Some students had come up with this on their own. Goebbels saw the potential and provided fuel.

Meanwhile, back in the states, nobody in power was interested in fueling up any public demonstrations. They’d only recently sent General Douglas MacArthur into D.C. to bust the heads of the Bonus Army. Still, the arc of the moral universe may be bent toward justice.
