* Crystal Night (Kristallnacht)

This is a very significant issue in Judaica history and the story of the Holocaust. One column heads on the front page: "Attache Dead; Nazis Riot and Fire Synagogues" "Hitler's Doctor Fails to Save Victim of Paris Assassin" "Berlin Finds 'Martyr' in Anti-Jewish Drive" with smaller subheads.
