Remember, remember the NINTH of NOVEMBER

Remember, remember, the NINTH of November

We have just remembered the Gunpowder Plot, on 5th November. And quite right too, it was a terrible evil that was planned, and we were fortunate the plot was discovered at the eleventh hour.

But arguably we should also remember, or rather commemorate, one of the most appalling single days in European history:

Kristallnacht.

It was on ninth November 1938 that, in a single night, the Nazis perpetrated the following atrocities, all within a space of 15 hours:

* 96 Jews were killed

* around 30,000 Jews were arrested and sent to concentration camps

* 177 Jewish synagogues were destroyed, 76 demolished, and a further 101 burnt to the ground

* 7,500 shops and businesses owned by Jews were systematically destroyed, pillaged and looted

* many Jewish cemeteries were destroyed

* many Jewish schools and homes were destroyed.


It came to be known as ‘Kristallnacht’ because broken glass littered the streets of German cities.

The Nazis had carefully planned this international outrage for months, if not longer. All it needed was an event which would justify this carnage.

It came when a Polish Jew, Herschel Grynszpan, shot dead - on 7 November 1938 - Ernst vom Rath, a high-ranking German official in the German Embassy in Paris.

The Nazis falsely claimed that Kristallnacht was ‘the German people’s spontaneous response to this ‘act of Jewish terrorism’.’

Grynszpan was eventually arrested by the Nazis, but after two attempts to put him on trial, convict him and execute him, they failed.

Ernst von Rath, in common with many members of the Nazi hierarchy, was a homosexual. And he liked teenage boys. Grynszpan, at the age of 17, was a male prostitute. As partial payment for his sexual services, Grynszpan extracted a priceless promise from von Rath: to preserve his parents from a new Nazi law which had revoked the citizenship of Polish Jews who had been living abroad for over 5 years and still retained Polish citizenship.

But von Rath broke his promise. Grynszpan was to learn that his parents had been rounded up, with thousands of others, in the dead of winter and sub-zero temperatures, and herded into a concentration camp at Zbonszyn on the German-Polish border. In retaliation, he shot von Rath dead.

The Gestapo found and arrested Grynszpan in 1940.

Ernst von Rath was a German hero. He was given a full state funeral; Adolf Hitler led the mourners. But days before the trial of Grynszpan, it was cancelled on the personal orders of The Leader.

Grynszpan’s lawyers, Hitler learned, would expose the fact that von Rath was the serial user of the sexual services of teenage boys, and moreover would expose the full extent of homosexuality amongst the Nazi elite.

Grynszpan was spared - at least for a while.

He subsequently ‘disappeared’.



[ ETA: The ninth of November may also come to be remembered as the day the McCanns' co-ordinating lawyer, Edward Smethurst, opened his first pub in Norden, Rochdale ]

And Thursday 9th November 1989 was the day the Berlin Wall came down.
I was there. Ich bin ein Mauerspechte.
(Actually the Friday, for the sake of historical accuracy !!)

What a day that must have been! I visited Berlin for a few days three years ago, and what a city it is for reminders of past glories and tragedies of German history. As well as seeing what is left of the Berlin Wall, we visited the concentration camp at Sachsenhausen (northern part of the city), a grim reminder of the extent one man can act inhumanly to another. Worth reading: 'The Berlin Wall, 13 August 1961 to 9 November 1989' by Frederick Taylor; surely the saddest part of the book is reading the many tragic accounts of those who tried to escape the evils of the East German regime, but were shot or otherwise perished in their valiant attempts to find freedom

Morning Tony,
I went back to Berlin a few years ago and couldn't find my way round !
The centre has moved back to Stadtmitte, the wall has gone, apart from some historic relics, KuDamm is now a dump, and so on.
And they have even turned the quadriga on the Brandenburg Gate round to face the correct way.
Very strange feeling.

One of the sights of Berlin, west of centre, is a huge monument to famous German war victories - a huge pillar that celebrates their victory in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-1.

There aren't any others...

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
