Elsbeth Rosenfeld talks about Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass) - an organised nationwide attack on Jews - and compares it to a declaration of war. After a description of the horror of that night and how she survived, the question 'why Jews didn't just leave?' is discussed. She explains that one-third of them did leave, but it was made very difficult both by the Germans and other countries that imposed limits on the numbers of refugees that they would take.
