On November 9 10 1938 Nazi Germany using SA storm troopers and sympathetic civilians carried out the Kristallnacht or Night of Broken Glass a series of systematic attacks targeting Jewish homes and businesses Almost 100 people were killed and thousands were wounded and or arrested and sent to concentration camps United States President Franklin D Roosevelt issued a harsh condemnation stating that he could scarcely believe such a thing could happen in a twentieth century civilization This statement came almost six years after both he and Adolph Hitler had taken power respectively and almost six years after he had dispatched American professor William Dodd a plain spoken Jeffersonian Democrat of Spartan means and simple tastes to serve as American Ambassador Differing mightily from the Pretty Good Club of independently wealthy aristocratic leaning gentlemen diplomats usually deployed by the state department Dodd had vowed to operate the Berlin embassy on a strict budget and would live within his means on his government salary of seventeen thousand dollars a year As an example and illustration he eschewed the limousines and other trappings of his office and transported his homely old Chevrolet to Germany with him Roosevelt hoped that Professor Dodd would be a shining beacon of American common sense and constitutionalism in the fanatical leaning Germany that was embracing a young Hitler But truth be known Dodd was not Roosevelt s first choice for the appointment or the second or the third he was by all accounts a dark horse candidate for the job and a statesman not at all embraced by the elitist upper echelons of diplomatic society And truth be known Dodd himself would have much rather spent those years on his farm in Virginia uietly writing volumes of his Old South history So it was a misfit ambassador in an aristocratic transitional government city speaking with an odd accent who confronted the embryonic Third Reich on behalf of America Dealing with awkward relationships in Berlin and an increasingly hostile state department in Washington Dodd alone among so many government leaders saw what would become if nothing was done And his enemies in Washington downplayed his warnings and played politics and intrigue rather than investigating his claims of Hitler s real purposeIt is in this setting of internal and external tension that author Erik Larson weaves his novelistic history of the years before World War II and Hitler s rise to international conflict More than that Larson s journalistic narrative describes Dodd s family his lusty and adventurous daughter and how this eclectic American family lived down the street from SA commander Rohm and within walking distance of Nazi elite Fascinating compelling and disturbingly relevant for our own times as issues of freedom of speech and expression continue to be discussed scarcely realistic given that we now live in a twenty first century global civilization
