Nearly 8,000 Jewish-owned businesses, schools, hospitals, and homes were destroyed during one night of brutality in November 1938. German Nazis and their supporters took to the streets of Germany and Austria bent on destruction. They burned hundreds of synagogues to the ground, killed more than 100 Jews, and sent 30,000 more to concentration camps. Kristallnacht, "the night of broken glass," would mark the beginning of the Holocaust.

VOYA - Kristen Rademacher

"Mixing personal anecdotes with primary sources and a nonfiction narrative style, the authors present each event clearly, and colorful inserts on most pages provide additional information. . . .Despite being a slight 112 pages, each book packs an impressive amount of detailed information, as well as an emotional punch. There are many photographs, maps, and newspaper clippings inserted throughout the book. . . .The series is valuable for both junior high and young senior high school research or for any reader interested in World War II. This series is a highly recommended purchase." - VOYA

Jewish Book Council - Michal Hoschander

"Useful for at-home reading but primarily designed for the classroom or library, this series will find a helpful and much-used place on the history education shelf." - Jewish Book Council
