Why Do They Do This?

On May 10, 1933, the Nazis (i.e., members of the German Student Union) held a big, public book-burning at Bebelplatz, a large square in Berlin. About 20,000 books were burned. Among the books burned were works by Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx (the father of communism), Rosa Luxemburg (a communist) and August Bebel (a left-wing socialist). (Today, there’s a memorial on the book-burning site, designed by Jewish artist Micha Ullman — of course!).

Yet, despite that infamous book-burning, some people still try to paint the Nazis as “leftists” or “Marxists.” Why do they do this? To confuse? To defame?

“Most of the major Nazi and Fascist leaders were Marxists…” (despite being anti-Bolsheviks??)
