The false reporting that the National Socialist Party itself carried out the violent outburst against Jews that took place in Germany during the night of Nov. 9-10, 1938 -- supposedly engineered by Goebbels, Himmler and Heydrich (!) -- is very competently refuted by revisionist historian Ingrid Weckert. Carolyn reduces Weckert's research and conclusions to three lie-proof reasons why "Kristallnacht" (Crystal Night - The Night of Broken Glass) was a false flag instigated by foreign Jewry. They are:
*Qui Bono? International Jewry benefited from it, while the National-Socialists and Hitler's government were disgraced and had difficulty coming up with any believable explanations for such a "propaganda disaster";
*The timing of Nov. 9, the anniversary date of the 1923 failed putsch in Munich which was holy to Hitler and his party, would never have been chosen by them. But because all the N-S district leaders from all over the Reich would be in Munich then, made it a brilliant choice by the real perpetrators;
*The support given to Herschel Grynspan, the young Polish-Jewish assassin of the Sec. of the German Embassy in Paris, Ernst Vom Rath (used as a pretext for the rioting), by LICA (Int. League Against Anti-Semitism), now LICRA, points to this Jewish/Communist organization as the real perpetrator behind Kristallnacht.

I looked forward to reading this book immensely, and I was not disappointed. I also highly recommend to read the following "CENSORED" books:

1) "THE HOAX OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY" by Arthur R. Butz.
2) "NOT GUILTY AT NUREMBERG" by Carlos W. Porter.
3) "TREBLINKA - Extermination Camp or Transit Camp?" by Carlo Mattogno & Jürgen Graf.
4) "AUSCHWITZ: The First Gassing" by Carlo Mattogno.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Other Side (Probably New for You) 18 July 2010
By Ingrid Lorenz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As desperate military conflicts fade into the past, it becomes (socially) more possible for each side to consider what the situation looked like to the erstwhile enemy (of course, there are always those who wish to perpetuate wars, for whom anyone once CONSIDERED an enemy must always BE an enemy - these are the vultures of war, and they DO feed on wars).

Kristallnacht wasn't a military conflict, of course, but it BECAME (see Vultures above) part of the run-up to a monumental conflict - indeed, part of the CAUSES for said conflict. This conflict, beginning less than a year after Kristallnacht, has grossly distorted historical understanding of the incident, for people on both sides.

Weikert tries to view the matter without the occluding "hindsight" that World War II has long enshrouded the subject in. Her attempt is very valuable, and provides a quantum leap from wartime propaganda toward . . . the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars What the evidence shows! 9 Aug. 2010
By Richard Dumke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ingrid Weckert should not have had her doctoral credentials revoked; her work is the product of critical thinking as an attempt to accept or recreate the reasoning that was used to condemn the German people, ad hominem. This same reasoning process is applied to the text of the Holy Scriptures and yet it is rejected for inquiry into the most heinous crime of the 20th century. Surely, this is politically correct, but it is absolutely injust. The historical narrative, as it is delivered to the public via media and to public school educators, is morally distorted because the motivation is the protection of special interests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, thorough effort by author Ingrid Weckert 25 April 2010
By prinzwurzel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was seven years old in NSDAP Germany in 1938. I cannot attest first-hand to most of the November 9, 1938 events described by author Ingrid Weckert in her book Feuerzeichen (English title: Flashpoint).
HOWEVER, I did see things that clearly support her contention that the destruction of Jewish property and the burning of Synagogues was definitely not an official, or even unofficial act of the governing Socialist Party.
As I watched, I saw the police in our town making strong efforts to protect persons and property wherever they could; protect them from loud unruly mobs running through the street -- these mobs were in no way connected with any official state business. The state of peace and order in Germany during these pre-war years was exemplary.
The damage and destruction of that November day were strongly opposed during the following days and weeks by repeated notices on radio and by word-of-mouth. I saw local Jews protected from the mob, but I did see a Jewish clothing store which had been set on fire, allowed to burn out, while the fire service protected the adjoining properties.
As Weckert points out, these terrible events were far more destructive to Germany in the long run, having their ill effects on international views of Germany to this day.
What I found to be particularly noteworthy in Weckert's book is the absence of words of negative affective connotation, a clever device familiar to all students of semantics. Almost every one of the hundreds of book and TV program I have seen on the subject of National Socialist Germany during those years has many examples of this clever semantic device, obviously designed to instill and enforce within a reader's mind the views of the writer, not necessarily an exposure of facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 12 Aug. 2005
By Charles Coats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The first reviewer is a perfect example of why more books like this one are needed. Notice how he/she doesn't refute any information in the book, or point out factual errors, but there is a lot of name calling and posturing. I don't fault him/her if they want to diagree, but at least let everyone know why and support your position!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth not Story 2 Sept. 2001
By Florian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's a very truly and realistic book that shows us that most of history writers tell things nothing to do with reality, just to defend interests of a little range of people. In this book you will find just facts not lies about World War II and who begins with it.
