Miss World Peace

in Berlin

In memory of the Book Burning

80 Years Later


There is a naïve belief that academia is immune to bigotry and the causes that students and professors lead are inherently “good causes”, even if sometimes ahead of their time. 


Nothing is further from the truth. 


Humboldt University in Germany was not less prestigious than today’s Colombia. In the 1920s it was a centre of liberal thinking. A decade later mobs of Humboldt students and many professors burned Jewish and other “corrupt” books in The Bebelplatz Universitätsplatz ("University Square"). 

Its faculty developed pseudo academic fields like race theory, eugenics and forced euthanasia. Heidelberg did have administrators, but unfortunately, it lacked moral leadership - the same lack of moral leadership we are sadly witnessing today.


Will Columbia and other universities throughout the world screaming out against Israel and the Jews, be remembered as Humboldt?
