#onthisday, 1938, nearly one year to the date of the release of "The Eternal Jew" exhibition, Nazis instigate pogroms throughout Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia that would later be known with the euphemism, Kristallnacht (Night of Crystals) - which served to downplay the horrors and tragedy done against the Jewish People over the next two days.
