Kristallnacht

Night of Broken Glass also known as Kristallnacht took place on November 9th, 1938 other wise known as the twentieth century. On this horrifying night Jewish people got beat, raped, arrested, and murdered just because of religion. That night Jewish owned shops got ransacked and synagogues got burned. This event took place in Germany as well as Austria. Not only were the Jews tortured they were also taken from their home town and dropped off in cattle cars at the polish border. This night is what started the holocaust.
