Kristallnacht was the first extreme act of violence against the Jews and signaled the beginning of the Jews of Nazi Europe.

Fifty years after Kristallnacht, a survivor, Sigmund Tobias said, “Yet the Nazis had brazenly destroyed the most awesome objects of our faith. I will never forget how horror struck this six-year-old at the realization that there was no safety for us anywhere.”
