Night of Broken Glass'

We Remember: Last night marked 76 years since the 'Night of Broken Glass' in Nazi Germany. The memory of these events must live on, PLEASE SHARE.

On the nights of November 9 and 10, 1938 rampaging mobs throughout Germany and the newly acquired territories of Austria and Sudetenland freely attacked Jews in the street, in their homes and at their places of work and worship. At least 91 Jews were killed and hundreds more injured, more than 1,000 synagogues were burned, almost 7,500 Jewish businesses were destroyed, cemeteries and schools were vandalized, and 30,000 Jews were arrested and sent to concentration camps in a brutal campaign of anti-Semitic violence. http://tinyurl.com/NightofBrokenGlass
