Browse Germany’s ‘Parthenon’ of Banned Books

(via Great Big Story)  In Kassel, Germany, at the very site where Nazis once burned over 2,000 books by Jewish and Marxist writers, Argentine artist Marta Minujín has built a colossal tribute to free speech. The “Parthenon of Books” is a giant temporary replica of the famous Greek temple in Athens. The installation is covered by more than 100,000 books that have been banned at various stages throughout history.
