Quite a heavy going book, with lots of detail. Good for someone who wants a lot of information.

Description

One of our most eminent historians presents a powerful look at the buildup to and aftermath of one of the most decisive moments of the Second World War -- Kristallnacht -- not only for the Jewish population suddenly identified as a group to be destroyed, but also in terms of the international response it inspired and its larger implications. In 'Kristallnacht', Martin Gilbert seamlessly combines a moving account of the suffering of the victims of the Nazi regime with a sophisticated analysis of the gradual process which made the horrors of the Third Reich possible. Broadening his canvas, Gilbert also powerfully depicts how the rest of the world failed Europe's increasingly desperate Jewish population: in the aftermath to Kristallnacht almost every country was asked to help; most would not do so, despite the transport of a staggering 10,000 German Jewish children to Britain. This international indifference had direct implications for future German policy, while the events of Kristallnacht went on to radically influence the attitudes of governments -- and people -- outside Germany towards Nazism.
