Kristallnacht Plus 70


Info-packed show today.

This week marked the 70th anniversary of the night in 1938 when Nazis attacked Jewish businesses all over Germany. It was a watershed event leading to the holocaust. Ironically 51 years to the day later the Berlin Wall came down. What’s the significance?

John’s boralogue examines the history and results of Kristallnacht. Rabbi Gordon Cooper from the Simon Wiesenthal Center ( in Los Angeles comes on board later to summarize the resurgence of anti-antisemitism worldwide.

In assessing how the U.S. got itself into a financial mess, congress succeeded in deflecting responsibility from itself when it was a major factor. Picking up last week’s thread, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich ( recommended we talk with former Ohio Congressman Bob McEwen: if you can’t figure out what caused something, you can’t fix it.

Finally we’ll resume another thread from last week rotating around the radical changes in geopolitics. Historian Dr. Steve Carol from Middle East Radio Forum ( joins us.
