The Start of Jew's Terror

What Happened?

Through Adolf Hitler the German people became the scapegoat for all of Germany's problems. This anger was directed through discrimination and resentment of the jews, and not until Kristallnacht did the Germans get horrifically violent. On November 9 - November 10, 1938 the first real violence broke loose. That day ninety two innocent jews were murdered, and 20,000 sent too concentration camps. Homes, businesses, and synagogues were decimated. The sudden and shocking violence was simply because of a spontaneous German outburst in their hatred for the Jews.
