The other night I watched a PBS special on Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass), a series of coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on November 9-10, 1938. These were carried out by Hitler’s forces and non-Jewish civilians and resulted in the death of hundreds of Jews who were incarcerated and sent to concentration camps. A vast number of Jewish homes, hospitals and schools were destroyed and more than 7,000 Jewish businesses were devastated. Over 1,000 synagogues were burned to the ground. I was able to find a transcript to further review the two infamous Nuremberg Laws that Hitler initiated during his rise to power. From those, more than 2,000 antisemitic laws were ratified at all levels of government, thereby sealing the fate of the Jews of the Third Reich.
