Summary
On the 7th November 1938, an impoverished 17-year-old Polish Jew living in Paris, obsessed with Nazi persecution of his family in Germany and, brooding on revenge and his own insignificance, bought a small handgun, carried it on the Metro to the German Embassy in Paris, and never before having fired a weapon, shot down the first German diplomat he saw. When the wounded official died two days later, Hitler and Goebbels used his death as their pretext for the state-sponsored wave of anti-Semitic violence and terror known as Kristallnacht, the pogrom that was the initiating event of the Holocaust. Overnight this obscure young man, Herschel Grynszpan, found himself world-famous, a face on front pages everywhere, and a pawn in the machinations of great power
