Night of Broken Glass

On the night of November 9, 1938, Kristallnacht (the "Night of Broken Glass”) in which violence against Jews broke out across Germany. German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and other Nazis had planned and organised the pogroms. In just two days, more than 250 synagogues were burned, Jewish businesses, schools and homes were trashed and looted, dozens of Jewish people were killed. After this many committed suicide while families tried desperately to leave.
