More Than Broken Glass: Memories Of Kristallnacht
Dramatic archival news footage, photographs, and interviews with witnesses are woven together to present a portrait of the times and events leading to the November 1938 "Night of Broken Glass," when German synagogues were ransacked and homes and businesses of Jews were looted or set on fire. This program places Kristallnacht in its historical context by describing the political climate in Germany in the 1930s and the lasting effect of the events on the lives of survivors. Grades 7 and up. (31 min.)
