A young man cleans up on Nov. 10, 1938, after the violence of Kristallnacht: Many synagogues in the Württemberg, Baden and Hohenzollern regions were "set on fire by well-disciplined and apparently well-equipped young men in civilian clothes," reported US Consul-General Samuel W. Honaker, noting that the process was "practically the same” in all cities. "The doors of the synagogues were forced open. Certain sections of the building and furnishing were drenched with petrol and set on fire. Bibles, prayer books and other sacred things were thrown into the flames,” he wrote.
