Kristallnacht By: Kiah ritzer

Driving question - How can learning about the Holocaust help us understand the effects of intolerance?

People cleaning the streets that were littered with shards of glass. $12 billion was the estimated value of Jewish assets stolen by the Nazis in just six different countries.

This is a burning synagogue. Over 1,000 Jewish synagogues were burned during Kristallnacht.

Many buildings were completely destroyed after being looted. An estimated value of $10 million was caused in damage to Jewish property.

This is the inside of a place of worship that was destroyed.

Jews were lined up for roll call. It was best if you did exactly what the Germans said otherwise they would shoot you on the spot.

Jews were held at gun point by the Nazis. 1 out of every six victims were children; this added up to over one million.
