On this news article, you can read about the possibility that Herschel Grynszpan is still alive: http://www.haaretz.com/world-news/europe/.premium-1.759957

In 1938, there was a night of violence in Germany, that came to be known as  Kristallnacht. This was the night that German citizens smashed windows in Jewish shops and set fire to over 200 Jewish Synagogues throughout Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland in what is now the Czech Republic. Ninety-one people were killed during this uncontrolled riot which the police did not try to stop.

That night, Hitler and his henchmen were gathered at the Bürgerbräukeller, a beer hall in Munich, celebrating the anniversary of Hitler’s attempt to take over the German government by force in 1923; Hitler’s failed Putsch had been organized at the Bürgerbräukeller.

Joseph Goebbels made a speech, at the beer hall, in which he said that he would not be surprised if the German people were so outraged by the assassination of German diplomat Ernst vom Rath, by a Polish Jew named Herschel Grynszpan, that they would take the law into their own lands and attack Jewish businesses and Synagogues. Goebbels is generally credited with being the instigator of the pogrom. (Pogrom is a Polish word which means an event in which ordinary citizens use violence to drive the Jews out.)

In spite of the Jewish “holy war” against the Nazis, there were no Jews sent to any of the concentration camps solely because they were Jewish, during the first five and a half years that the Nazi concentration camps were in existence. Jews were sent to the Dachau concentration camp, from day one, but it was because they were Communists or trade union leaders, not because they were Jewish.

The first Jews, to be taken into “protective custody” in Germany, simply because they were Jewish, were arrested during the pogrom on the night of November 9th & 10th in 1938, which the Nazis named Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass).

Kristallnacht was the night that German citizens smashed windows in Jewish shops and set fire to over 200 Jewish Synagogues throughout Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland in what is now the Czech Republic. Ninety-one people were killed during this uncontrolled riot which the police did not try to stop.

That night, Hitler and his henchmen were gathered at the Bürgerbräukeller, a beer hall in Munich, celebrating the anniversary of Hitler’s attempt to take over the German government by force in 1923; Hitler’s failed Putsch had been organized at the Bürgerbräukeller.

Joseph Goebbels made a speech, at the beer hall, in which he said that he would not be surprised if the German people were so outraged by the assassination of German diplomat Ernst vom Rath, by a Polish Jew named Herschel Grynszpan, that they would take the law into their own lands and attack Jewish businesses and Synagogues. Goebbels is generally credited with being the instigator of the pogrom. (Pogrom is a Polish word which means an event in which ordinary citizens use violence to drive the Jews out.)

Approximately 30,00 Jewish men were arrested during the pogrom, allegedly for their own protection, and taken to the 3 major concentration camps in Germany, including 10,911 who were brought to Dachau and held as prisoners while they were pressured to sign over their property and leave the country.

The majority of these Jews were released within a few weeks, after they had promised to leave Germany within six months; most of them wound up in Shanghai, the only place that did not require a visa, because other countries, except Great Britain, refused to take them.

In anticipation of such violence against the Jews by the Nazis, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had invited 32 countries to a Conference in Evian, France in July 1938 to discuss the problem of Jewish refugees.

The only country which agreed to allow Jewish refugees, as immigrants. was the Dominican Republic; 5,000 German Jews emigrated to the Dominican Republic before the start of World War II.

The American Congress refused to change the US immigration laws, passed in 1920 and 1921, to allow a higher quota of Jewish refugees from Germany to enter, although America did start filling the quota under the existing laws for the first time. The poor Jews — no country wanted them!

  2. Quite funny that a young Jew felt the need to murder a German diplomat because his parents (Polish Jews living in Nazi Germany) had just been forcibly pushed out the alleged Nazi Hell. If the mainstream atrocity propaganda about Nazi Germany was true, Herschel Grynszpan should have done such a thing because his parents were prevented from leaving the ‘Nazi Hell,’ NOT because his parents were prevented from continuing to live in the ‘Nazi Hell’ through a repatriation to Poland.

  3. Haaretz stated: “That night, Hitler and his henchmen were gathered at the Bürgerbräukeller, a beer hall in Munich, celebrating the anniversary of Hitler’s attempt to take over the German government by force in 1923; Hitler’s failed Putsch had been organized at the Bürgerbräukeller.”

    Distorted history for simpletons again…

    The Beerhall Putsch is commonly misunderstood as Hitler’s first attempt to remove democracy. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

    When the second German Reich was founded as a constitutional monarchy, the Kaiser became supreme commander of the German army. The King of Bavaria however refused to subordinate that prerogative. In 1914, Kaiser Wilhelm II therefore had to declare the “state of war for the German Reich except the territory of the Kingdom of Bavaria.” The state of war never was declared by the Bavarian King during WW1. However, he sent some troops to support the German Army, among those was Adolf Hitler.

    The Government of the Weimar Republic wanted to change that situation in order to gain control over the Bavarian Army. The leader of a relatively unknown political party in Munich, Adolf Hitler, published a sharply critical article about the Berlin (socialist) government’s plan in his own newspaper. The Secretary of Defense in Berlin then ordered to stop the publication of the newspaper, to confiscate all printed issues and to arrest Adolf Hitler. The generals of the Bavarian Army however refused to obey the order. So Berlin then declared those generals were to be dismissed. In these circumstances, Hitler invited the Bavarian Army leaders and local officials to the Bräuhauskeller, where he called for a march on Berlin in order to overturn the authoritarian (socialist) government. The next day Hitler was arrested.

    When the Berlin government asked the Bavarian authorities to hand over Hitler and his associates to the Federal High Court in Leipzig, the jurisdiction for the criminal charge of “high treason,” the Bavarian government refused the demand and Hitler and his men were court-martialed in a local court in Munich. Regarding the background of the plot and the honest intentions of the plotters, the chairman of the court issued a very mild verdict and, in his justification of the conviction, even had words of praise for the defendants.

    In reality, in 1923, Hitler attempted to save Bavarian democracy and the judge acknowledged the intention. That story has been intensively rewritten because it does not fit the politically correct image of Hitler as the personification of all evil.

  4. This explains the 64,000 dollar question….where did the Jews go….You know our resident (on leave of absence I assume) Holohuxsters here make a big deal if the Jews weren’t killed where did they go? Apparently they went in several directions to parts unknown out of the country. I’m sure many of the camp relatives said of such missing relatives they were separated from, they were killed immediately when they got off the trains…LOL Guess what? They went from the train to another connecting train eventually giving them the opportunity to get out of the country. Is that so hard to understand…..NO, they want to believe their relatives were all slaughtered by the Germans in whatever horrific way they can imagine.
    To them dead Jews mean big buckos for the Jewish cause later on. That is also why the 6 million figure never goes down even though the death rates have been lowered substantially over the last 75 years.
    There will always be 6 million Jews that died even if they find out none were killed in “fake” homicidal gas chambers by bug spray, or whatever other silly thing they can dream up.

  5. David Irving says Grynszpan survived the war and rather strongly implies that he was funded by the left-wing Jewish activist group., LICA (still existing, now called LICRA):
