Book Burning Memorial
'In the center of Bebelplatz, a glass window showing rows and rows of empty bookshelves. The memorial commemorates the night in 1933 when 20,000 “anti-German” books were burned here under the instigation of Goebbels. There's a plaque nearby that says something like “Where they burn books, they will also burn humans in the end.” '
That quote was actually said by Heinrich Heine, a Jewish convert to Christianity whose books were among those burned.
this describes my life
Chelsea Fagan is wonderful, and you should all go buy her book.
White girl stereotypes certainly aren’t an issue of race, and they aren’t damaging, but they’re absolutely the stupidest most laziest things. Like that shit has been repeated ad nauseum. White girl jokes are the new “what’s the deal with airline food?” Hayuk hayuk amirite? Yeaaahh we get it, uggs and pumpkin spice lattes and instagram hahahaha can we move on please thank youu
don’t even fucking get me started on white girls making fun of white girls as tho they don’t act like that themselves, it smacks so much of a smaller version of kickin women in the face to join the boys club its not even funny
Have you ever seen a painting of an elephant? Probably. What about a picture of an elephant painting a painting of an elephant? No? Well meet Suda who lives in Maetaeng Elephant Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The park was created to provide a unique and safe environment where all elephants are treated well and are free of harm from poachers. In the early years, the elephants would paint abstract brush strokes on the paper, and slowly over time, they learned to produce two and three dimensional art. They have an incredible ability to trace back over their original brush stroke. Elephants have a keen memory and show that here by being able to repeat the same paintings and techniques.
