“Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can put thought in a concentration camp forever. No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man’s eternal fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are weapons.”

-Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Books are weapons in the war of ideas”, 1941 – 1945
