Kristallnacht 75th Anniversary: What Really Happened in Nazi Germany?

The Night of Broken Glass

This weekend marked a traumatic event for Jewish people living in Germany in 1938.

Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, happened 75 years ago when Nazi thugs conducted a wave of violent anti-Jewish pogroms on the streets of Berlin and other cities in Germany.

On November 9 and 10, 1938, Nazi storm troopers and non-Jewish civilians descended on towns throughout Germany and parts of Austria, destroying Jewish homes, schools, synagogues, hospitals and businesses. At least 91 Jews were killed in the two-day attack, and roughly 30,000 people were arrested and sent to concentration camps. This dark chapter in German history is seen as a precursor to the Holocaust.

U.S. President Barack Obama issued a statement to commemorate the anniversary of Kristallnacht, stating that “the event foreshadowed the systematic slaughter of six million Jews and millions of other innocent victims.”

That Kristallnacht foreshadowed the holocaust is a true statement.

But what foreshadowed Kristallnacht?

The story of Herschel Grynszpan, arguably the most pivotal teenager of the Holocaust next to Anne Frank, is largely ignored in the commemorations and articles about Kristallnacht.

In the 1930s and 1940s Grynszpan was a major media story but today, other than a fleeting mention as a prelude or pretext to the pogrom, he is mostly ignored.

The Jewish Week Media Group (TJWMG), which claims to provide great journalism to the Jewish community, publishedThe Rest Of The Kristallnacht Story in November of 2010.

Jonathan Mark, Associate Editor for TJWMG reports that Kristallnacht happened just two days after a five-foot tall 17-year old .… Herschel Grynszpan entered the German embassy in Paris ostensibly to deliver a document. Ushered into Vom Rath’s office, Grynszpan announced: “In the name of 12,000 persecuted Jews, here is the document,” and he fired five bullets and killed Ernst Vom Rath, a Nazi assigned to the German embassy.

Things don’t just happen they are made to happen.

Not surprising, TJWMG, a Jewish publication, misrepresents, distorts and obfuscates the Herschel Grynszpan story in order to fulfill their mission to strengthen the Jewish community by failing to enlighten them about whatreallyhappend on November 7, 1938.

[Excerpt from The Rest Of The Kristallnacht Story published in the Jewish Journal TJWMG]

For years, Herschel Grynszpan was a major media story but now he’s a historical cipher. Kristallnacht commemorations and articles mostly ignore him, other than a fleeting mention as a prelude or pretext to the pogrom.

The Nazis not only orchestrated Kristallnacht — but they tried to orchestrate the media coverage, too. They charged that German-language papers in France were guilty of anti-German incitement that led Grynszpan to kill.

According to the Associated Press (July 2, 1939), “international tension is holding up the trial of Herschel Grynszpan.” There were doubts about finding an impartial jury because of anti-German feeling. Not to mention anti-Jewish sentiment.

Readers were told how Grynszpan, a former yeshiva student resembling the baby-faced Sal Mineo in “Exodus,” had been living with relatives in Paris. Allegedly several days before the shooting, his parents in Germany were deported with 12,000 other Polish Jews who had been living near the German-Polish border. The Poles wouldn’t accept them. The Germans kept the deportees living in the wild, without shelter, along the border.

On November 7, 1938, the diminutive Grynszpan dressed for history in a suit and tie entered the German embassy ostensibly to deliver a document. Ushered into Vom Rath’s office, Grynszpan announced: “In the name of 12,000 persecuted Jews, here is the document,” and he fired five bullets.

The Times’ two-column front-page headline let it be known that Grynszpan acted “To Avenge Expulsions By The Nazis.” [1]

Vichy France delivered Grynszpan to the Nazis. The Nazis, said the Times (March 24, 1941), decided to keep Grynszpan alive for “an elaborate German ‘show trial’ to be held after the war in an effort to reveal a world-wide Jewish-Masonic plot to kill many high Nazi leaders…”

The Nazis sent psychiatrists to Grynszpan’s cell, which led to a stunning revelation. Grynszpan told the Nazi psychiatrist that he was not only gay but also Vom Rath’s lover. According to Haaretz (November 13, 2008), Dr. Victor Mueller-Hess said Grynszpan met Vom Rath, 29, on a Paris street. In exchange for sex, Vom Rath promised to use his influence at the embassy to help Grynszpan’s parents.

When the affair did not lead to help from Vom Rath, the teenager shot him.

The gay angle was discussed in Josef Goebbel’s diary as a potential problem for the show trial. The unseemly discomfort of mixing Nazi-Jewish homosexuality with Kristallnacht is likely the reason why Grynszpan, once a media and Jewish hero, stopped being mentioned at most Kristallnacht commemorations beyond a sentence or two.

That is even though Haaretz reported that Grynszpan also wrote a coded note in Hebrew saying his gay confession was a ploy. His lawyer — the Nazis allowed him a lawyer — had discovered that Vom Rath was gay, and Grynszpan figured that outing the martyred Nazi would throw a wrench into the “grand propaganda trial.”

There never was a trial.

Headline on the front page of the Völkischer Beobachter, reporting on the death of Vom Rath, November 14, 1938.

Reichskristallnacht, Crystal night: cause and effect

Ernst vom Rath was killed when a Polish Jew, Herschel Grynszpan, walked into the German Embassy in France one week earlier and assassinates (according to most historical accounts) a “top German” diplomat, as revenge for the expulsion of Herschel’s parents from Germany to Poland.

The following definitions will help the reader understand the Herschel Grynszpan story: [2]

  • Zionism: an organization of Jews who believed the Jewish people needed a nation of their own to escape persecution.
  • Judaism: Jews collectively who practice a religion based on the Torah and the Talmud.
  • RothIsm or Rothschild Zionists: abbreviation for The Zionist movement corrupted and co-opted by The House of Rothschild and their agents to advance a New World Order agenda. In 1871 Albert Pike Grand Master of the Luciferian group known as the Order of the Palladium, received a vision, which he described in a letter dated August 15, 1871 that graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order.

Joseph Goebbels suspects a Jewish conspiracy and plans a show trial hoping to demonstrate Grynszpan’s link with the “Rothschild Zionists” to plunge Europe into war [not a world-wide Jewish-Masonic plot to kill many high Nazi leaders], but the trial is scrapped when Grynszpan fabricates a story about a homosexual liaison between the junior diplomat and himself.

The wartime court documents reveal Goebbels is correct.

Grynszpan first accosts Count Welczek, the German ambassador, in the street outside the embassy, and demanded to know “where he could find the ambassador.” Count Welczek, sensing trouble, did not identify himself, but helpfully directed the stranger into the First Secretary’s office, where the assassin, who was well-heeled with both money and an expensive gun, pumped bullets into Ernst vom Rath, believing him to be the ambassador. The unemployed illegal immigrant Grynszpan had checked into an expensive hotel just round the corner from the offices of LICA, the forerunner of the modern Rothschild Zionists activist group LICRA. One of the foremost barristers in Paris, Moro Giafferiis, is hired by LICA to defend Grynszpan after he was arrested. [3]

People are entitled to draw their own conclusions.

“Crystal night” or the Night of Broken Glass was the “effect,” a pogrom in Nazi Germany that marked the beginning of the systematic Entfernung of the Jews and served as a prelude to the Holocaust that was to follow.

Doctor Kubovy, from the Tel Aviv “Documentation Center”, admitted in 1960 “There is no document signed by Hitler, Himmler or Heydrich which speaks of exterminating the Jews… and in 1981, Walter Laqueur, author of The terrible secret, admitted: “Until now, we have never found Hitler’s order to destroy the European Jewish community, and in all probability the order was never given.” There is no order because Hitler used the term Entfernung of the Jews – removal or expulsion.

Up until “Crystal night” not enough Jews had not been “re” moved to Palestine. September 11, 1939 WWII begins when “economic warfare is forced on Germany.” Six days later the Soviet Union invades Poland and when the fighting is over, multiple millions are removed, some permanently, and the Jewish race (which was not exterminated) had formed their own state and became a powerful force in world politics.

[1] When France surrendered to the Germans, benevolent French police drove Grynszpan more than 100 miles from Paris, setting him free. Grynszpan inexplicably decided he’d rather return to jail. Said the Times (Sept. 8, 1940), “Grynszpan’s trip across France, knocking on prison doors in search of officials to accept his surrender, will probably remain unique in prison annals.”

[2] RBZJ: The Rothschild Backed Zionist Jews, acronym used when referring to anyone connected to or related to the House of Rothschild.

RAGENT: Abbreviation for a Rothschild Agent

The House of Rothschild (the Rothschilds): Global financial empire founded in the late 18th century by a dynasty of Khazars, an ancient people from Georgia. The Rothschilds control a vast portion of the world’s wealth and are the hidden hand behind all the social-cataclysms: the French, Russian and American Revolutions; Communism, Capitalism, World Wars and the Modern State of Israel. The Rothschilds are not the Jews of the bible and do not practice Judaism.

Mel Gibson would have been correct if he had claimed, The Rothschilds are responsible for all the wars in the world. The “Labour Leader” newspaper of Britain on December 19, 1891 referred to the Rothschilds when they wrote:

This blood-sucking crew has been the cause of untold mischief and misery in Europe during the present century, and has piled up its prodigious wealth chiefly through fomenting wars between States which ought never to have quarreled. Wherever there is trouble in Europe, wherever rumors of war circulate and men’s minds are distraught with fear of change and calamity you may be sure that a hook-nosed Rothschild is at his games somewhere near the region of the disturbance (ibid, p. 12).

In “Imperialism,” writer J. A. Hobson wrote: “No Great War could be undertaken by any European State…if the house of Rothschild and its connections set their face against it” (ibid, p, 25). The “Labour Leader” did not use the term Jew because the Rothschilds are the descendants of Khazars; they are not of Abraham’s Seed.

Rothschild founded and funded the Zionist movement to further a New World Order agenda. At the first Zionist conference Theodor Herzl, a Rothschild agent (Ragent) makes it clear Rothschildism (RothIsm) is not about saving Jews, “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews….become worse….this will assist in realization of our plans….I have an excellent idea….I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth….The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends.”
