The fate of the German Jews after Crystal Night

After Crystal Night, the numbers of Jews wishing to flee Germany increased radically.
Hitler has prearranged a creation of central agency to hasten the Jews’ immigration. Emigration procedures were simplified, yet another problem occurred when almost all countries refused to admit Jews. Palestine was the only country that allowed Jews during that time, provided they possessed one thousand pounds sterling each, as required by the British authorities there.

It has been calculated that between 1933 and 1939, approximately half the Jewish population of Germany left the nation. Several important Jews including the Jewish scientists were among the evacuees.

Crystal Night was one of the most shameful events involving the National Socialists in Germany. Although the Jews were arrested, beaten and suffered initially, the greatest harm was ultimately done to Germany’s reputation.
