November 7, 2007

This week marks the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the "Night of Broken Glass" when German stormtroopers smashed the windows of Jewish shops . . . an event often referred to as the start of the Holocaust. A recent book about the Holocaust is "The Lost", Daniel Mendelsohn's account of his search to find out exactly what happened to six family members about whom he was told simply "they were killed by the Nazis."
