THE DETROIT FREE PRESS, Nov. 10, 1938
* Crystal Night (Kristallnacht)
* Night of Broken Glass - Persecution of Jews
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. Text begins: "Nazis, enraged at the assassination in Paris by a young Polish Jew of Ernest von Rath, minor German diplomat, early today retaliated by smashing windows of all Jewish stores...".
Complete in 30 pages, light toning and a little margin wear, generally nice.
