Lead:  On November 9, 1938 the full power of Nazi Germany was turned against its Jewish citizens. Their homes, businesses, and places of worship were attacked by carefully orchestrated mobs of roving vandals. It was Kristallnacht - the night of broken glass.

Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: Kristallnacht was not the spontaneous eruption of nativist feelings. It was not the direct result of a lingering general hatred for Jews by the majority of Germans. It was a planned exercise, part of the Nazi Party's policy on race that had for two decades bubbled up out of the fever swamp that was Adolf Hitler's mind.
