Gilbert examines this night and day of terror, presenting readers with a meticulously researched, masterfully written, and eye-opening study of one of the darkest chapters in human history.

Important but very grim account of Nazi-sponsored attack on Jewish buildings etc. and Jews themselves
  antiquary | Jul 1, 2013 |
This book is infused with eyewitness accounts of the horror and obscenity that was Kristallnacht. It is difficult to read only because it opens us up to a world that we'd rather not think about, but one that was real and still within the lifetimes of people living today. It reminds us that we should never forget. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060570830, Hardcover)

In the early hours of November 10, 1938, Nazi storm troopers and Hitler Youth rampaged through Jewish neighborhoods across Germany, leaving behind them a horrifying trail of terror and destruction. More than a thousand synagogues and many thousands of Jewish shops were destroyed, while thirty thousand Jews were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. Kristallnacht—the Night of Broken Glass—was a decisive stage in the systematic eradication of a people who traced their origins in Germany to Roman times and was a sinister forewarning of the Holocaust.

With rare insight and acumen, Martin Gilbert examines this night and day of terror, presenting readers with a meticulously researched, masterfully written, and eye-opening study of one of the darkest chapters in human history.

"Kristallnacht - the night of broken glass - saw the destruction in a single night of more than a thousand synagogues, the ransacking of tens of thousands of Jewish shops and homes, and more than 30,000 Jewish men rounded up and taken to concentration camps. No other attack on Jews during the course of the Second World War was as widely reported by contemporary observers. Drawing on personal correspondence with more than fifty eyewitnesses and on vivid newspaper and diplomatic reports, pre-eminent historian Martin Gilbert has produced a meticulously researched account of the event."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
