His series Das Leben des Menschen (Human Life) was a #bestseller. In 1933, #antisemitic #propaganda caused him to close his practice, and his books were publicly burned. In late 1938, shortly after #Kristallnacht, Kahn’s books were placed on the list of “damaging and undesirable writing” and in addition his book on #sexuality, Unser Geschlechtsleben, was banned by the #police and all available copies destroyed. His illustrations were used in works by Gerhard Venzmer, a #Nazi endorsed #medical #writer.
