BELGIUM-EU-KRISTALLNACHT


President of the European Parliament German Hans Gert Pottering (L) talks with Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv Ysrael Meiv Lau during a ceremony for the 70th anniversary anniversary of the Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) pogrom, on November 10, 2008 at the European Parliament in Brussels. The pogrom, also known as the Night of Broken Glass, saw Nazi thugs plunder Jewish businesses throughout Germany, torch some 300 synagogues and round up some 30,000 Jewish men for deportation to concentration camps. Some 90 Jews were killed in the orgy of violence on November 9, 1938 whose pretext was the murder of German diplomat Ernst vom Rath in Paris by a student, Herschel Grynspan, who sought revenge for the expulsion of his family from Germany with about 15,000 other Polish Jews.
