The square in front of the law faculty was the location of the Nazi book burning. There is a small opening in the middle of the square showing empty book shelves to symbolise this act.

We came upon Humboldt University by chance while walking on Unter der Linden. Beautiful campus and public square. We learned Karl Marx & Einstein are alumni! Located on both sides of Unter der Linden - absolutely beautiful public square surrounded by gorgeous buildings.

A beautiful building and interesting to learn that this university has produced the greatest amount of Nobel prize winners! A lot of famous names passed though here, including Karl Marx and Einstein. Very interesting, and sad, to hear about the book burning and empty library.
