On the 9th of November 1938, the Nazis organized a series of mobs against Jews in Germany. Thousands of synagogues, Jewish businesses, and homes were destroyed and burned. Tens of thousands of Jews were sent to concentration camps. This event came to be called Kristallnacht or the "Night of the Broken Glass.”

World reaction was strongly negative, especially in the United States, where systematic boycotts were organized against German products.
