Synagogues were burned down or demolished. There were bonfires in every Jewish neighborhood, fueled by Jewish prayer books, Torah scrolls, and volumes of philosophy, history, and poetry. More than 30,000 Jews were arrested and 91 killed. The night got its name from the smashing of glass store windows.
