„I never taught of book burning, no matter how they were silly, mendacious or propaganda-like because I guide myself by the principle that every book burning was just an introduction to burning (of people) at the stake.“

—  Ivica Šola 1968

„Where they burn books, at the end they also burn people“

—  Heinrich Heine German poet, journalist, essayist, and literary critic 1797 - 1856
Almansor: A Tragedy (1823), as translated in True Religion (2003) by Graham Ward, p. 142 Variant translations: Wherever books are burned, men in the end will also burn. Where they burn books, at the end they also burn people. Where they burn books, they will also burn people. It is there, where they burn books, that eventually they burn people. Where they burn books, so too will they in the end burn human beings. Where they burn books, they also burn people. Them that begin by burning books, end by burning men.
