In addition, Nov. 9 marks the remembrance of Kristallnacht or the “Night of the Broken Glass,” which occurred throughout what was Nazi Germany, Nov.9–10, 1938. This event was a pogrom carried out against Jews, during which Jewish businesses and homes were attacked, synagogues were damaged and destroyed, Jews were beaten and killed, all done with German authorities looking on without intervening.
