Today in History
 
In 1938, Nazis looted and burned Jewish businesses and synagogues in Germany and Austria. The incident, which is referred to as Kristallnacht or the "Night of Broken Glass" killed almost 100 people, and in its aftermath, some 30,000 men were arrested for being Jewish. Check out rare footage that shows what everyday life in Nazi Austria was like during that time.
