Today, marks the 70th Anniversary of Kristallnacht.

On a single night, 92 Jews were murdered and 25,000–30,000 were arrested and deported to concentration camps.

Kristallnacht changed the nature of persecution from economic, political, and social to the physical with beatings, incarceration, and murder; the event is often referred to as the beginning of the Holocaust.

I remember learning about Kristallnacht in my German class. ;_; It was pretty much the only day that we didn't laugh in that class.

That looks like that started in late February 1933. Read about it here.
