CLAIM: When Hitler found out about the Kristallnacht pogrom he was "livid with rage." He summoned Josef Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda, to his apartment and "made a terrible scene."
RESPONSE: Adolf Hitler did not try to stop the pogrom. He authorized Goebbels to get it started. Other Nazi officials in Hitler's inner circle and their subordinates sent out clarifying instructions throughout the night giving directions on how best to conduct the pogrom -- not stop it.
