For one horrific night in November 1938, the streets of Germany and Austria were overrun with people bent on destruction. Members of the Nazi Party and their supporters destroyed close to 8,000 Jewish-owned businesses and homes. Hundreds of synagogues were burned to the ground and more than 100 Jews were killed. This book describes the "night of broken glass" and also presents the historical events that led to the rise of Hitler, the Nazi Party's beliefs about race and the horrible aftereffects of Kristallnacht.
