Biographical / Historical
Kristallnacht, also referred to as the “Night of Broken Glass,” was a pogrom (a series of coordinated deadly attacks) against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and Austria on 9-10 November 1938, carried out by SA paramilitary forces and non-Jewish civilians. German authorities looked on without intervening. The name Kristallnacht comes from the shards of broken glass that littered the streets after Jewish owned stores, buildings, and synagogues had their windows smashed.
