Kristallnacht By: Mia Gallardo and Brianna Martinez

On November 9th and 10th of 1938, homes, synagogues, businesses, etc were trashed, torched, and destroyed by German officials. Jewish men were arrested and taken to concentration camps, along with almost 100 Jews being killed. Kristanllnacht stands for "The Night of the Broken Glass." The reason for this name is the huge amounts of glass that laid on the streets after the destruction. Conditions for Jews got even worse after this. This event was basically violence, discrimination, and destruction against Jews and their beliefs.
