The 1938 November Pogroms in Diplomatic Reports from Germany
75 years after the pogroms, this exhibition examines the reports composed by foreign diplomats on the events of November 1938.
How did the representatives of other states portray this outbreak of naked violence against Jews in Germany? Who were the authors? And how did the German Foreign Office react to the interventions of foreign diplomatic missions?
Documents from over 20 countries cast new light on the diplomatic events of 1938.
They show how the pogroms were perceived on the international stage and how they were reported on from within Germany to the rest of the world.
