77th anniversary of Kristallnacht – the night of broken glass

In the past, I have written several blog posts with the tag Kristallnacht: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/kristallnacht/

This morning, I read a news article which mentions Kristallnacht:

http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/news/2015/oct/29/first-hand-lesson-holocaust-fairfax/

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote:

On the seventy-seventh anniversary of when supposedly civilized nations lost their collective minds, we are here to learn the lesson – first hand – of what can happen when people just stand by and do nothing.” That was how George Mason University President Dr. Angel Cabrera described the Expressions of the Holocaust event, organized by Mason Hillel, the school’s Jewish life organization, at which he was a guest speaker on Sunday, Oct. 25 [2015].

As he greeted the assembly of thirty Holocaust survivors, families, friends, Hillel members, students and community guests, Cabrera was referring to the upcoming anniversary of Kristallnacht (The Night of Broken Glass), the night in 1938 when mob violence (later aided by Nazi Storm Troopers, members of the SS and Hitler Youth) broke out across Germany, Austria and other Nazi controlled areas. By morning, untold numbers of Jews were beaten or murdered. Jewish homes and businesses were looted or destroyed. Hundreds of synagogues were vandalized or burnt to the ground, and some 30,000 Jewish men were arrested to be later sent to concentration camps. Many historians view Kristallnacht as the public ignition point of the Nazis’ determination to rid the Jewish presence from anywhere within their sphere of control and influence.
Groups like Mason Hillel are determined that the lessons of the past are not lost. “This is our third program dedicated to Holocaust education and remembrance,” said Taylor Kreinces, chair of the event. “We will hear memories of our honored guests to better understand their lessons of the Holocaust…to share their experiences and wisdom for future generations.” Kreinces asked participants to take a memory from the event and share it, hoping that they, too, will share. “It’s the only way to ‘never forget.’”

November 9th is regarded a historic faithful day in Germany as on the same day in 1918 monarchy in Germany was overthrown, in 1939 it heralded the Holocaust and in 1989 it marked the fall of the Berlin Wall which resulted in the German reunification after 28 years of division.

I have blogged about Kristallnacht on several blog posts.

The following quote is from a previous blog post at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/10/07/the-famous-jewish-boycott-of-german-goods-in-march-1933/

Begin quote:

When I visited the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, I saw photographs of the German boycott of Jewish stores on April 1, 1933. The caption on one of the photos mentioned that “there was talk of an American boycott of German goods” but didn’t say whether this boycott had actually happened.

An American boycott of German goods had been declared by Rabbi Stephen Wise on March 23, 1933, the same day that the German Congress voted to give Hitler dictatorial powers under the Enabling Act. The German one-day boycott was supposedly intended to stop the news stories of Nazi atrocities which were being printed in Jewish newspapers.

Every Holocaust survivor, who is out on the lecture circuit today, speaking to 5th graders in America, begins his or her talk by telling these gullible young children about how wonderful it was in Germany before that evil monster Hitler came along, and for no reason at all, started Holocausting the innocent Jews, who had never done anything wrong in the entire history of the world.  Oh, the humanity!

I was born in 1933, and when I first heard about the International boycott of German goods, I almost kicked the slats out of my crib. I assumed that every one in the world knew about the International boycott, but apparently I was wrong.

  1. “started Holocausting the innocent Jews, who had never done anything wrong in the entire history of the world.”

    Umm..are you really suggesting that Jews deserved to be killed en masse? Because that’s what it sounds like.

  2. ‘Crystal Night’ 1938: The great Anti-German spectacle, By Ingrid Weckert: http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v06/v06p183_Weckert.html

    Comment by hermie — October 30, 2015 @ 7:18 pm

  3. Now for the rest of the story….it seems that every reaction creates another reaction an this is exactly what happened here.
    Polish Jew Hershel Grynspan goes to the German embassy to speak with Ernst vom Rath a 29 year old German embassy official.
    When he is greeted by him Grynspan shoots him. This was the straw that broke the camels back with the Germans as this was the second killing of a German official by seditious Jews.
    The Germans were fed up with all the Jewish boycotts, slanders, warmongering and outright murders against them.
    So some rogue Germans went on a vandalism spree against Jewish business to express their anger and frustration. Completely understandable when people get fed up with things. Was Hitler behind this? Did he approve of it?
    Hitler was furious that this was happening and ordered the violence to stop immediately and it did the first night.
    Funny how the press never mentions what caused all of this to happened and blame only the Germans.
    To make it look like this was a policy supported by Hitler is wrong. If Hitler was behind it it would of went on for days, wouldn’t you think?

    • I hope you are not using information provided by David Irving. His libel action against Lipstadt proved that Irving falsified his records regarding the pogrom. Hitler was well aware and approved of the action, the main concern was about the damage to non-Jewish buildings.

    • Ironically, mainstream mass media always ‘forget’ to mention that Herschel Grynszpan shot Ernst vom Rath because his parents (Polish Jews living in Nazi Germany at that time) had just been expelled from Germany and sent to Poland during the “Polenaktion” of October 1938. No need to wonder why kosher media never mention Jews preferring to live in Nazi Germany rather than Poland, nor a young Jew so infuriated to see his dear parents expelled from the ‘Nazi Hell’ (according to that time’s propaganda) that he decided to shoot a German ambassador because of that.

      Whatever, that Kristallnacht looked like a typical weekend in those days’ southern United States. But Negroes are much less good at weeping, overplaying, distorting and lying than Jews are. Americans’ hypocrisy and ability to self-deception are quite amazing, even if I can understand why they don’t like remembering, for instance, that White mobs torched 35 blocks of Black homes and businesses at Tulsa in 1921 because a Black guy had just assaulted a White girl.

      And I note that the people trying to involve Hitler in Kristallnacht fail to bring anything but a few Nazis expecting anti-Jewish riots because of vom Rath’s death, some excited turbulent SA young men joining the ‘party’, and ultra anti-Semitic Goebbels rejoicing at the perspective of Germany’s Jews finally getting a due pay back. Goebbels was the Minister of Propaganda and the Gauleiter of Berlin. Had he wanted to order such a pogrom, he would have been unable to do it as that was out of his prerogatives. He had no order to give to other Gauleiters. And Berlin, Goebbels’ ‘territory’, was quite untouched by the damages of Kristallnacht.

  4. One of the best versions of what REALLY happened around the so called Kristallnacht is “Crystal Night 1938 — The great Anti-German spectacle” written by the German historian and revisionist Ingrid Weckert.
    It is well worth spending time reading it:

  5. At the KRISTALLNACHT my Father Rabbi Benjamin Murmelstein received a phone call about SS having entered the Synagogue located in the Comunity Head Quarter building. So, at his arrival, he found Eichmann comanding the destruction of benches and even the Holy Arc with the Holy Scrolls. Murmelstein and an other official were told to stay in a room; after some hours Eichmann came holding a revolver and shouting JEZT WIRD ABER AUSGEWANDERT – Now emigration will really start.
    In my personal opinion the REICHSKRISTLLNACHT had been to celebrate the surrender in 1918 for wich the Jewish.- Marxist criminals had been blamed by the propaganda and so the bancruptcy or Prussian Military Class had not been mentioned.

    • Is that you Wolf?

      Eichmann comanding the destruction

      Do you mean to say that Eichmann — Adolf Eichmann — was personally vandalizing synagogues in 1938?

      Comment by eah — October 30, 2015 @ 11:11 am

      • Yes! My Father had to watch the destruction of that Synagogue. It was painfull for him to recall the destruction of the Holy Arc and the Holy Scrolls.

        • wolf: “It was painfull for him to recall the destruction of the Holy Arc and the Holy Scrolls.”

          Everything is painful for the race of sissy fags called Jewry. All the Jews of the word should commit mass suicide in order to end the unbearable sufferings of life. I suggest to do that on next Purim. A kind of collective auto-‘Hamanization’.😉

          • This is my reply,
            Japan and Germany did have a treaty but it was for defensive purposes only. If the U.S. had attacked Japan this would have triggered the declaration of war.
            Throughout the summer and fall of 1941 the Japanese repeatedly sought firm assurances that Germany would declare war on the US, however, Hitler and Ribbentrop avoided giving a firm commitment. At one point Hitler did appear to say that he would declare war, however, there was no written treaty regarding this.
            During the summer of 1941 there was an undeclared naval war between the U.S. and Germany, both sides did shoot at each other. Hitler actually showed remarkable restraint in not escalating this conflict in spite of the pressure to do so by his navy.
            When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor they also launched one of the best coordinated naval attacks in history. In addition to Pearl Harbor, within a day or so they launched successive attacks against British and U.S. possessions throughout the Pacific. Because of this attack the U.S. needed to withdraw elements of its navy from the Atlantic to the Pacific to counter this threat. As a consequence this eased the pressure on the German navy.
            FDR did not have the necessary votes to declare war on Germany. At that point U.S. attention was focused on Japan as the obvious threat. Hitler’s declaration of war was therefore an unnecessary act of madness, especially due to the fact that the Red Army was driving his army back from Moscow.
            So, why don’t you go FUCK yourself, you arrogant, pretentious, Nazi-loving, piece of shit.
            And go read a history book.
            Asshole.

            • FDR did not have the necessary votes to declare war on Germany.

              Oh really? Thanks for the info. And no real immediate cause or justification as well — minor points though. To that I could also say: so he did the dishonorable thing and waged an undeclared war (but Congress passed Lend-Lease, so they were to blame as well).

              And go read a history book.

              Why do I need to do that? What about my comment was inaccurate, or showed gross ignorance of history? Nothing of course.

              I don’t need to read another book — as I said, the US had been basically waging an undeclared war by providing significant material assistance to nations at war with Germany — this was rightly seen by the Germans as a hostile act. As I said, Hitler’s formal declaration was unwise — but at least he openly declared war — you could say he stood by an ally.

              The rest of your comment is just repetitious blah blah — not sure what the point is — except to show what a big know-it-all you are — yes, you’re even an expert on all the treaty details between Japan and Germany during WWII.

              You spam the comments with links, including links to hack sites with obvious nonsense — eg Prussian blue is soluble (absurd) — never acknowledging that. You childishly gainsay numerous comments, to the point of on occasion taking up 50% of the comment space in a thread — as I recently showed. Your foto ought to be next to the word ‘oblivious’ in the dictionary.

              Nazi-loving

              Yeah, sure. The rest of it is OK because after all I did call you a fucking moron.

              Comment by eah — October 31, 2015 @ 9:50 am

              • I think I’ve repeatedly shown my grasp of this subject. You can’t deny this so you are reduced to calling me a fucking moron.
                Which just goes to show how ignorant you are.
                As far as linking to hack sites, what do you think most Holocaust Denial websites are? I prefer to get my information from reputable sources, real historians who don’t selectively use documentation to fit their crackpot ideas (see David Irving).
                Oh, here is some more information about Zyclon B from an actual chemist:

                • I will refrain from profanity.

                  I called you what I called you because you are stupid — profoundly stupid. You may know things, but you are stupid. You say stupid, asinine things. You are a cheap, prissy, pseudo-intellectual.

                  One recent example — Here in this comment you again denigrated Fred Leuchter’s professional qualifications/expertise: I have nothing against Leuchter personally, my issue has always been with his qualifications. Yeah, right, nothing personal — just like all the people and organizations who went after him — nothing personal, just destroying his reputation, his ability to earn a living — but it wasn’t personal.

                  I don’t believe he was qualified to determine if the Krema were gas chambers.

                  Why? I guess because he had no degree in engineering. Do you think people study gas chamber design? And who the hell are you to judge his technical expertise? He has technical patents — how many do you have?

                  Anyone who does technical work knows that acquired technical knowledge and expertise in a particular field/technical area is far more valuable than some college degree and no experience — and likely knowledge, certainly in something as abstruse as gas chambers — whatsoever in the technical area. Talk to any engineer — ask them what it’s like trying to get a job doing something they haven’t done before, just because they have a degree. This comment alone shows how stupid and shallow you are. But it gets worse.

                  Berg and Butz are engineers, why not contact them?

                  Yeah, Butz — great suggestion. At the time, one of the most famous — notorious is better — ‘Holocaust deniers’ on the planet — author of Hoax of the Twentieth Century (hardly a subtle title). One can imagine the reception a report by Butz would’ve gotten — if they didn’t claim he wasn’t exactly unbiased, they would have said he has no expertise in that technical area (which would have been true of course). Absolutely idiotic.

                  In fact, Zündel made a good choice: Leuchter was an acknowledged, professional expert in an abstruse technical area, and, perhaps more importantly, at the time completely agnostic on the ‘Holocaust’ question — no one could accuse him of having any bias. But you are too stupid to see that.

                  And you did this — again denigrated Leuchter — after info re the The Lüftl Report had been posted here. Walter Lüftl is a widely respected professional engineer — he was even Präsident der Bundesingenieurkammer in Austria. He also did a report on the alleged gas chambers of Auschwitz, and came to the same conclusions as Leuchter.

                  Germar Rudolf is a PhD chemist.

                  So ‘real’ engineers and scientists corroborated Leuchter’s findings — clearly per your statements there is no problem with their qualifications — so what is the problem then with Leuchter? In fact, Leuchter should have gotten credit because he reached the same technical conclusions as other highly credentialed people.

                  I actually feel rather sad that I know about the stuff I posted regarding Butz and Berg. I didn’t realize that my curiosity would open those kind of doors when I clicked a link about Holocaust Denial. I now know far more about it than I ever wanted to.

                  Oh boo hoo — you cheap, prissy, pseudo-intellectual little ass.

              • Qualified chemists and architects refuted Leuchter, Zundel and Rudolph.
                Chemists and architects that do not have political and racist axes to grind.
                True, Leuchter has patents….that have nothing to do with execution devices.
                I still have not found any evidence that Leuchter actually built a gas chamber, what I’ve read of him he actually worked on electric chairs and lethal injection devices. How does this qualify him as an “expert?”
                How nice of you to refrain from profanity but you still resorted to personal insults. Prissy intellectual? Seriously? Someone who spouts off as much as you do has real balls calling me names. Again, you can’t refute me so you are accuse me of being stupid, a prissy intellectual, etc.
                You are pathetic. You go off like a teenage girl who’s boyfriend left her at the prom and you accuse me of being prissy.

                  His record of employment and achievement in his technical area of expertise qualified him as an expert. What qualifications to you have question that?

                  refute me

                  Refute you? What exactly should I refute? My whole comment was a refutation of your idiotic, puerile attacks on Leuchter — in particular, I showed how profoundly stupid you are for suggesting Butz would have been a better choice.

                  resorted to personal insults

                  You deserve every damn one of them.

            • FDR had a plan to attack Germany and Italy with a US expeditionary force. It was called Rainbow 5 – http://www.veteranstoday.com/2008/06/16/rainbow-5-roosevelts-secret-pre-pearl-harbor-war-plan-exposed/
              Hitler’s declaration of war against the US was simply a formality. http://codoh.com/library/document/2222/ Roosevelt was determined to go to war against Germany no matter what. Remember at the Atlantic Charter conference he said to Churchill “I may wage war but I may never declare war”.

              • Hitler was a fool.
                The US considered the Japanese the bigger threat after Pearl Harbor.
                Hitler didn’t need to do anything, as a matter of fact a lot of the lend lease the US was pouring into Britain was going to divert to the US war effort.
                By declaring war Hitler played into FDR’s hands.

And Haman had been hanged. That occured with Nazism and Third Reich and Hitler had no choice than suicide after having led Germant and Europe in war during which there had been many young men fallen on battelfield and could not have upsprings, And so the demographyc deficit must be filled by immigrants.
            At Purim in 1946 the main nazi gang leaders had been hanged. And you, after the above kind comment, can only kiss my ass.

            • wolf: “From history we learn that Mordechai…”

              Calling the Book of Esther and the Talmud “history” won’t improve the reliability and credibility of your claims, writings and evidential standards.

              wolf: “And Haman had been hanged. That occured with Nazism and Third Reich and Hitler ”

              That’s the reason why Julius Streicher, who knew the habits and beliefs of your tribe, screamed “Purim 1946!” just before being hanged.

              wolf: “in war during which there had been many young men fallen on battelfield and could not have upsprings, And so the demographyc deficit must be filled by immigrants.”

              I’m afraid you’ll find very few people still believing that the post-WW2 Jew-led mass immigration into Europe and America was/is due to the demographic losses of WW2. The WW2 demographic loss of US lives was quite insignificant, but America’s home Jews did organize non-White mass immigration into the United States nevertheless. Such mass immigration was/is just both parasitic survival strategy (by pouring more otherness and diversity into its host’s life, the Jewish parasite decreased its host’s otherness-based pressure on itself; or in other words, what makes the host weaker makes the parasite stronger) and the revenge of the Ghetto Beast…

              wolf: “And you, after the above kind comment, can only kiss my ass.”

                  I was talking about some Jews and their collaborators (their useful idiots) organizing the mass immigration of Niggers, Arabs, Turks, Spics, and Chinks into Europe and America, not about a Jewish mass immigration in Europe and Amerikike. Try to find a Gentile near you if you’re too dumb to understand what I say without any help.

                  wolf: “Indeed you have a heavy mental health problem due to the continous quoting of the nazi negationst propaganda slogans until believing that non sense”

                  Where did I quote “nazi negationist propaganda slogan”?

                  Quite rich allegation from somebody who thinks the nonsenses in the Book of Esther are history.😉

                • Hermie! 1. The scholar Hoschander in 1923 published his book THE BOOK OF ESTER IN HISTORY where he quotes a high number of greek historians about the dating of Persian King Artaxerxes II and his time. This fully meets with the Book of Ester.2. The idea of Jews organizing the mass emigration from Africa and Asia to Europe is pure neonazi propaganda. 3. Your very kind suggestion of a mass suicide is pure nazism.

                • wolf: “The idea of Jews organizing the mass emigration from Africa and Asia to Europe is pure neonazi propaganda.”

                  Yeah, pure nazi propaganda. But anybody seriously investigating the topic ‘surprisingly’ finds Jews and their friends behind any measure opening American and European borders, facilitating the settlement of non-White migrants there, promoting race-mixing, etc. What another amazing coincidence, isn’t it?

                  wolf: “Your very kind suggestion of a mass suicide is pure nazism.”

                  I didn’t suggest mass suicide (what would imply that the Semitico-Khazarian Ghetto Beasts are part of the White race and they are not). I talked about a Jew-led mass murder of the Whire race. And the Jew will pay for that, soon or late. Be sure of that.

        Note: I did not read the link above, have no opinion about whether FDR was a “warmonger”, and in general think it was unwise for Hitler to formally declare war on the US — but the relationship between Nazi Germany and Japan probably played a role there (treaties etc).
        FDR didn’t declare war on Germany
        But via various means under the umbrella Lend-Lease law, the US had been providing direct and significant material assistance to nations at war with Germany, including Russia after Hitler invaded and before Hitler’s formal declaration of war on the US. So one could say that in some ways, and practically speaking, one thing missing on the US side was a formal declaration — elements of war-making had been in place for some time.
        You fucking moron.

      • Sorry eah, what I pasted got a little out of order but I’m sure you’ll get the gist. When I do this on my phone sometimes the screen jumps a bit.
        I put some historical information for you to read.
        Then I told you to go FUCK yourself. After that I told you to go read a history book and called you an Asshole.
        Happy Halloween.
