Why did the Nazis burn books?

Books provide ideas. They can provide alternative answers to the propaganda, contradicting the things the Nazi's wanted the people to believe. It is one way of controlling the population, controlling what they can know and learn. This meant the public would have no influences for ideas against the Nazis, preventing public rebellion which could cause the Nazis to lose power as the public gained power.
