Flames pouring out of a synagogue in Siegen, Germany, during Kristallnacht

Kristallnacht was a pogrom carried out by the Nazis throughout Germany and Austria on November 9-10, 1938. In Siegen, windows of Jewish homes were smashed and 11 Jewish men were sent to concentration camps. In May 1939, 41 Jews remained in Siegen. Four Jews committed suicide shortly before the rest were deported to the death camps in 1942-43.
