After seizing power, the Nazis began their crusade against Jews with discriminatory laws and the looting of property; they turned to violence openly in what has come to be known as Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass. In November of 1938, German soldiers set on fire some 400 synagogues and destroyed 7,000 Jewish stores and businesses. Through rare footage, photographs and documents, reveals the background to this orgy of anti-Semitic violence.
