From November 9-10, 1938, the infamous anti-Jewish pogrom known as Kristallnacht, or "The Night of Broken Glass," left hundreds of synagogues in ashes and thousands of Jewish owned homes and businesses in ruin. In the span of 48 hours, approximately 30,000 men were arrested and 91 Jewish people were murdered.
Kristallnacht was a pivotal event for Nazi Germany, in which full-scale violence against the Jews was encouraged. Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor and author of Night, described Kristallnacht as "the end of the beginning and the beginning of the end."
