US soldiers check the books stored in the basement of the Monument of the Battle of the Nations in Leipzig after they attacked the city 18 April 1945. The books piled in the basement are probably coming from Leipzig's libraries, the library of the Supreme Court of the Reich and an important university and cultural center, to protect them from the shelling.
