Hopefully they paid full price for their copies.

Incendio! Polish priests burn Harry Potter books
Catholic priests in northern Poland have burned books they consider to be sacrilegious, including ones from the Harry Potter boy wizard series.

An evangelical group, the SMS from Heaven Foundation, published pictures of the burning - which took place in the city of Gdansk - on Facebook.

Dort, wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen.
"That was but a prelude; where they burn books, they will ultimately burn people as well."

-- Heinrich Heine, 1797-1857, German-Jewish journalist and poet who later converted to Lutheranism. The 20th century was not the first time Germans burned books. But like the 20th century, they had just gone through some pretty horrific events leading up to it. It was actually a line from a tragedy he'd written and in context, was stated by a Muslim on hearing of the Crusaders burning the Quran. The phrase was engraved on the site of Berlin's Opernplatz in 1933, following the Nazi raid on the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft where they burned thousands of books, including works by Heinrich Heine, whom the Nazis particularly despised.

The Wikipedia article is a good read, thanks for prompting me to research it.. He was very able in predicting the future in many of his works.
