About the Author
Dr. Mitchell Bard is the Executive Director of the nonprofit American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise and the director of the Jewish Virtual Library (www.JewishVirtualLibrary.org), the world's most comprehensive online encyclopedia of Jewish history and culture (which averages nearly 1.5 million visitors per month).
"Gripping oral history . . . A searing depiction of the Holocaust's opening ceremonies." --Kirkus Reviews "The further away we get from the years of the Holocaust, the more necessary it is to recount what happened. One of the seminal events in Hitler's goal to destroy European Jewry was the "Night of Broken Glass" -- Kristallnacht. Mitchell Bard provides a comprehensive and penetrating account that should be read not only as a history of Holocaust, but as a lesson for the future." --Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League and author of The Deadliest Lies: The Israel Lobby and the Myth of Jewish Control and Never Again? The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism

"Kristallnacht's new Book of Lamentations. Mitchell Bard's 48 Hours of Kristallnacht's power derives from the stark and vivid words of German Jewish children who, in a single day saw their well-ordered world suddenly destroyed by the Nazis' brutality and the apathy and silence of neighbors and classmates."

--Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Weisnthal Center

"The most detailed and thoroughly researched book yet on the events of Kristallnacht." --Booklist
