04:35:17 "Opening of the Official Anti-Semitic Campaign, 1 April 1933." Minister for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels addresses a cheering crowd in Berlin Lustgarten. Speech. Boycott of Jewish shops begins. Truck filled with Nazis moves through streets, chanting: "Germans, protect yourselves. Don't buy from the Jews." Crowds in Berlin streets; good views, various. On doorway, sign with skull: "Achtung Juden." On closed stores the sign "Jude" and the Star of David painted on windows. SA men put up signs, hold back crowds.

04:38:02 "The Burning of the Books, 10 May 1933." Several angles of big bonfire in front of the university in Berlin, into which books are tossed.
