Summary
On November 9, 1938 widespread pogroms against Jews were launched across Germany, Austria, and the German-controlled territory of Sudetenland. This event, Kristallnacht, translated "Night of Broken Glass", foretold the greater horrors of the Holocaust. The author uses oral testimonies of eyewitnesses to Kristallnacht, mostly children of the time, with his own telling of the big picture, to present a broad view of this pivotal event in world history. This is the first book to thoroughly chronicle this event, much of the testimony not previously published
Summary
The first book to thoroughly chronicle this pivotal event by presenting a wide array of eyewitness testimony, much of it previously unpublished, and to set the event firmly in historical context
