For good or ill, the assassination of the top German diplomat, Ernst vom Rath, by the young Jewish guy Herschel Grynspan, which triggered Kristallnacht, the organised Nazi pogrom against Jews across Germany, was not politically-motivated, as commonly believed, but the result of a homosexual love affair between a Nazi diplomat and a young Jewish man, according to a leading expert on the Third Reich.

Prof Hans-Jürgen Döscher, who teaches modern history at Osnabrück University considered Germany's foremost authority on the events of November 9 1938 following the publication of his definitive history, Reichskristallnacht, has gathered scores of documents and eyewitness accounts, including the diaries of the French writer André Gide, to support the theory.

Until now, it was widely believed that Grynszpan had intended to shoot the ambassador, Count Johannes Welczek, in protest at the SS's expulsion of his parents to Poland. But according to Professor Döscher Grynszpan's actions were a spontaneous expression of anger over the broken promises of his lover, Vom Rath, not a political gesture.

If politicians run a search for false pretenses to justify their projects they will find such possibilities ...

Yes, you are right! And they found that excuse... Probably the Gestapo, the Secret Service of the Nazis, facilitated the encounter of the Ernst vom Rath and Herschel Grynspan ...

I had never heard of this event. I is astonishing how evil humans can be to each other.

Everytime I read or think about the Nazis this thoughts allways comes to mind.

They did do one thing right though, they picked the Swastika as there symbol and it has to be the very coolest of all time. To bad they spoiled it whith there actions.

Yes, but they have spoiled a lot of things and it has been alarming that NAZI FASCISM is still present in our days and not only in Germany and Austria!

NAZI FASCISM is present today all over the world in many disguises and revetments ... it's terrible!
