Jewish establishments were destroyed and some shops were taken over and there assets taken. The first time this happened in the early days of the Nazi's control.

Conclusion

The Propaganda Minister Dr Joseph Goebbels had carefully with other Nazi Leaders organised the Rally's and the trouble that happened he thought in would strengthen Hitler's power. In that Knight over 1000 synagogues were burnt, 7000 Jewish shops were looted and trashed. 20,000 Jewish people were carted off to concentration camps the morning after the Incident. The whole affair was to give Hitler a reason for him to send lots of Jews to prison and to Concentration camps. Propaganda also played a huge part in the control of the of Germany. For example if you were born in 1930 you would not understand anything until 1933 by then the Nazis were in control and one thing Hitler understood was that in order to keep the support of the populous the first thing you must do in get children interested in your party and get them to support it.
