yes it did. those books were jewish books as the nazis were against the jews. They also burnt down temples and sent many jews to concentration camps, as well as other "minorities" such as disabled-people, jehovah's witnesses, criminals, and those who opposed the nazi party.

One of our German friends can probably fill you in with more accuracy than I can. But I think the books that were burned were not just Jewish books, but books that were considered "unGerman." Which included books with themes that didn't fit the Nazi political worldview.

Art was also a target.

Yes, the Nazi's organized these things early on around universities, and many of the people burning the books were students and pro-Nazi professors. The initiative was often student based and the burning reflected anything that might be "tainted" by Jews, Communists, Jehovah's Witnesses, labor unions, homosexuals, and other Un-German elements.

That bit annoyed me

They really didn't need to play the Koeniggraetzer March during that scene

It's one of the classic Prussian marches and isn't at all associated with the Nazis

But whatever, it's a movie

Nazis were proud of "old german military traditions" so they played those songs.

there is a nice quote of a writer who watched the burning of those books:

"i cant eat that much i wanna barf"

are you a young person and haven`t studied history that much?
Here in Japan i got a kick out of reading in the Japanese media (English translations) that Japanese kids don`t know who the Nazi`s or Soviet Union. Translaters who have to put in subtitles were baffled that both these terms weren`t known.

I am 13 but I know differn't historical times other then WWII, such as the cival war and the early days of the Catholic church and differn't things about when Catholics came to the amarcia's so I just haven't gotten up to the more recent wars yet... but I know some of the older things.
