The Holocaust http://kwgs.org en Tulsa's Council for Holocaust Education Observes the 75th Anniversary of Kristallnacht http://kwgs.org/post/tulsas-council-holocaust-education-observes-75th-anniversary-kristallnacht <p>November 9th of this year marked the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht --- the "Crystal Night" or "Night of Broken Glass" --- which was a series of sudden, violent, and coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria. Beginning on that date in 1938, the SA (a Nazi paramilitary group also known as the "stormtroopers" or "brownshirts") carried out such attacks while German authorities either looked the other way or looked on but did nothing.
