Krystallnacht - 70 Years Ago Tonight

Lest the world forgets-

The 70th anniversary of Krystallnacht, The Night of Broken Glass, in Germany is November 9-10. While the world largely ignored the events happening in Nazi Germany in the 1930s, time has not forgotten.

During the nights of Krystallnacht, attacks were made on Jewish people in Germany and in Austria. In retrospect, it was condoned and even encouraged by Goebbels, Hitler's Chief of Propaganda.

Many now feel the Krystallnacht events are the actual beginning of the Holocaust.

Read world history. Learn more about the events that have shaken up the world. Learn so we don't repeat the past.
