Once Again, Books Are Burning in Europe

On November 9, the night sky was lit up by a pyre of burning books, as a cheering crowd exulted in the destruction of works of Jewish and other 'transgressive' authors. But this scene isn't from 1938: It's exactly 75 years later and we are in Hungary, not Nazi Germany.
