Today is the anniversary of "Kristallnacht". That, of course, was the Nazi's name for the pogrom that, for many, marks the beginning of the Holocaust.

I'm going to post three images. The first is a paragraph from my grandfather's "book". The second is a document from Dachau. The third is a photograph. I will translate the German as best as I can.
