Kristallnacht – Luther’s Birthday Party

Considered scientifically → see „Social Market Economy: The case of Germany“ page 42 para 4:
„The question to be asked here is of political nature and is whether the reason for the Reichskristallnacht of November 9/10, 1938, is in any way connected to Martin Luther’s birthday which is November 10. Critics of Luther‘ antisemitism state that the attacks, destructions and burnings of Jewish shops and synagogues by the Nazis were seen as an opportunity to honour Luther on his anniversary by doing what he had said in his teachings on Jews: destroy their shops, burn their synagogues, etc.“

Luther literally:

    Firstly, that their synagogues or schools be set on fire and, what may not burn, be heaped over with earth, so that no human being could see a stone or cinder for ever. And such should be done to honour our Lord and Christianity, so that God may see that we are Christians.“ ————————————————————————————–
    In Old-German-Wording: „Erstlich, das man jre Synagoga oder Schule mit feur anstecke und, was nicht verbrennen will, mit erden überheufe und beschütte, das kein Mensch ein stein oder schlacke davon sehe ewiglich. Und solches sol man thun, unserm Herrn und der Christenheit zu ehren damit Gott sehe, das wir Christen seien.“

What one can hardly dare to pronounce about Martin Luther and his Lutherans, the Germans, the Kristallnacht (also „Night of Broken Glass“, „Reichskristallnacht“, „Pogromnacht“, „Novemberpogrome“), and the world against Israel and the jews nowadays, the following video will, at least, try:
