Short Description
A report documenting the experiences of a doctor from Frankfurt who was arrested and imprisoned in Buchenwald as part of the November Pogrom.
Text Description

The November Pogrom, known alternatively as 'Kristallnacht,' also led to the desecration of over 1,200 synagogues and looting of thousands of Jewish businesses and homes.

In the months following November 1938, Dr Alfred Wiener and his colleagues collected over 350 contemporary testimonies and reports of the November Pogrom in Germany and Austria. This report documents the experiences of a doctor from Frankfurt who was arrested and imprisoned in Buchenwald.

Thanks to our team of dedicated volunteers, these documents are now available in English.
