In response to the death of Ernst vom Rath (whom had been shot two days earlier by Polish Jew Herschel Grynszpan) Göbbels approached Hitler to get approval to unleash an attack on German Jews.

With Hitler’s approval the SA was sent out to beat German Jews, and break the windows out of Jew’s houses and businesses. German Jews were also murdered this night.
