From the Publisher"The volume exposes the legend about ignorance."
Written in stark, almost conversational tones, the eyewitness testimony of Jews, half-Jews, and non-Jews is both moving and horrifying. The first-person narratives of the non-Jews document how impossible it was not to know what was happening on Reichskristallnacht and how painful it is years later to deal with repression and denial. The victims whose accounts are included here struggle with the subjectivity of their childhood memories, filling gaps with adult verification and continuing to agonize about distrust of their record.
The text is arranged in two parts: first the eyewitness accounts from Nuremberg of the events of November 1938; then a section containing analyses of policies, behavior, and events as they were directed at the Jews during the Third Reich.
