On November 9, 1938, exactly 79 years ago today, German Jews were terrorized during “Kristallnacht” (Night of Broken Glass) in retaliation for the assassination of a German Diplomat by a Jewish refugee.
General Goebbels of Germany secretly ordered the destruction of Jewish properties.
Following the deadly Kristallnacht, the Nazis Germany blamed the Jews and fined them 1 billion marks (or $400 million in 1938 dollars) for vom Rath’s death.
However, the event eventually signaled the beginning of the Holocaust of the World War II in which over 6 million European Jews died many in Nazi concentration camp.
