Once Hitler was informed of the shooting, violence against Jews had already broken out. However, Nazi minister, Joseph Goebbels, had encourage Hitler to allow further punishment for the Jews.
Joseph Goebbels had then ordered groups of Nazis to carry out the event of Kristallnacht.
Along with Goebbels, the head of the Gestapo (secret Nazi police), Heinrich Muller, had ordered the police to not interfere with the riots and to arrest as many able bodied Jewish men as possible.
Jewish women were instead sent to jail.
During Kristallnacht, non-Jewish citizens, destroyed, looted, and burned Jewish businesses, hospitals, schools, homes, and cemeteries.
Although Kristallnacht is known for destroying Jewish businesses, the main targets were actually the synagogues.
Kristallnacht in most places had lasted around 48 hours, but there were some places where Kristallnacht lasted even longer.
Firemen had actually been called in during Kristallnacht. However, they had been ordered to only stop fires from spreading to non-Jewish buildings while the Jewish buildings would continue to burn.
Most of the rioters had been the neighbors of the Jews, and the Jews were being attacked by people the knew.
Members of the SS and Hitler Youth also had helped on beating and/or killing Jews.
Along with the thousands of Jewish businesses and homes, thousands of Jewish men were stripped of their property and placed in concentration camps, while the females were placed in jail.
Also some of the men sent to the camps were randomly chosen to by killed by the SS guards.
There had been so many Jews sent to the camps that the camps that held them had to be expanded. The main camps that held the Jews were at Dachau, Buchenwald, and Sachsenhausen.
All this lead up to Kristallnacht to be known as the first major imprisonment of Jews to concentration camps.
You would expect that things wouldn't be able to get worse, but they did.
The aftermath of Kristallnacht led to more restrictions and segregation for the Jews, making life far worse for them.
Jewish children and teenagers were kicked out of schools. Jews started being placed in ghettos, and were forced to wear the star of David.
Many Jews tried to escape the country, but failed. As a result many Jews committed suicide afterwards.
