How Did Geography Affect Kristallnacht?
How Did Kristallnacht Change History?
The rest of the world did not have a very vocal response to the events that were taking place. Nothing really changed, and no one did anything to stop the violence. This foreshadowed the silence with which they would respond to the Nazi's permanent solution to creating the ideal society and race.
Kristallnacht was essentially a test run for the Holocaust. The Nazi's realized that the world was not going to take any harsh measures against Germany for their acts of violence and vandalism, so Hitler decided to take it a step further by sending even more Jews to concentration camps and ghettos and so forth. Because they were not reprimanded for Kristallnacht, they thought they were all good to go for their final plan.

"Night of Broken Glass"
Kristallnacht - What Was It?
Kristallnacht is the German word for "Crystal Night", or more loosely translated to "Night of Broken Glass".
It refers to the wave of violent outbreaks against the Jews by the German people in 1938
In 15 hours, 101 synagogues were destroyed by fire and 76 others were demolished. Jewish shops were destroyed and vandalized, and any Jew who tried to resist was arrested. Some were even beat to death right there in the streets.
Nazi officials tried to make it look like one spontaneous act, but really they had been planning it for weeks.
It was fueled by extreme anti-semitism, or hatred towards Jews.
