As Americans — actually, just as literate creatures — we’re protective of those special treasure troves of words we call books. In fact, well before our military involvement in World War II, the United States became terribly disturbed by a certain form of censorship occurring in Nazi Germany: book burning. Yes, noted American authors like Ernest Hemingway and Sinclair Lewis were victims of the burns, but American reaction was about more than our own names. The Dallas Holocaust Museum presents Fighting the Fires of Hate: America and the Nazi Book Burnings, a look at the stateside opposition to demonstrations of power that stole a basic liberty from the people of Germany. Fighting the Fires of Hate is a traveling exhibition of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. It opens at 10 a.m. Thursday and runs through October 15 at the Dallas Holocaust Museum, 211 N. Record St., Suite 100. Admission is $10 ($8 seniors, free for members). Call 214-741-7500 or visit dallasholocaustmuseum.org.
