Between Freedom of the Media and Intrusions of Censorship in German Popular Culture.
Seim, Roland
This paper gives an overview of censorship in Germany. The paper recognizes that between the human right and constitutional law of freedom of speech, art, and press on the one side and the social life of man which must be ensured on the other side, the right of free expression can clash with human dignity. It discusses which books, films, records, etc. are totally banned in Germany, and the reasons for this occurrence, noting that the main ground for book banning is Nazi propaganda. It also states that the restrictions on the publication and distribution of "suspicious material" in every genre of popular culture demonstrate the desire and the different and often subtle forms of governmental, religious, and social censorship. The book then suggests three books which focus on the media in Germany for further information about the structure, conditions, and function of censorship. (NKA)
