Prior to Kristallnacht, the Jews had little reason to believe their physical safety was at risk. That all changed just more than 70 years ago. The events of that night were the beginning of the Holocaust. It is fitting that a book record the events of this seminal historical event on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht.
