Title: 48 Hours of Kristallnacht
Author: Mitchell G. Bard, Ph.D.
Genre: World War II, Politics

I have posted a couple of excerpts from this book over the past year or so & it is high time I recommended it to those of you who are interested in what transpired on Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass).

48 Hours of Kristallnacht is the first book to thoroughly chronicle this pivotal event by presenting a wide array of eyewitness testimony, much of it previously unpublished, & to set the event firmly in historical context. Drawing on his unprecedented access to key archives, Dr. Mitchell G. Bard presents a shocking story that centers on the words of those who, as children, were on the scene first-hand. Together, these accounts & Bard’s incisive analysis reveal what led up to the pogroms, how they transpired, & their aftermath – & why the Holocaust can be dated from these two harrowing nights.

Kristallnacht’s new Book of Lamentations. The power of Mitchell Bard’s 48 Hours of Kristallnacht derives from the start & vivid words of German Jewish children who, in a single day, saw their well-ordered world suddenly destroyed by the Nazis’ brutality & by the apathy & silence of their neighbors & classmates.

    I couldn’t refrain from commenting. Exceptionally
    well written!

  9. I hardly leave a response, but i did some searching and wound up here In Books:
    Kristallnacht | WW2 Resource. And I actually do have some questions
    for you if you tend not to mind. Could it
    be only me or does it look like a few of the responses come across as if
    they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional online social sites,
    I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls
    of your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
