Thread Name: ADD/Chords: Krystallnacht Is Coming (Bob Franke)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Krystallnacht Is Coming (Bob Franke)
A curious fact about the Kristallnacht, revealed in _Hitler, Germans, and the "Jewish Question"_ by Sarah Gordon (1984), is that, as shown by polls, journalism, etc., it was unpopular in Germany, even among rank-and-file Nazis. This seems to have been because it was irregular and disorderly -- one might say, unGerman. (It was also a diplomatic embarrassment to the regime.) The experiment was not repeated. Thereafter, Jews were harassed, humiliated, robbed, exiled, and killed under strict forms of law.
