book review in today's Journal:

(if this is subscriber only could someone let me know?)

The reviewers conclusion -- that Grynszpan acted alone, was an isolated and
confused young man, etc. -- should sound familiar after Boston.

Trotsky's article on the case of course presents a deeper analysis:

PS see also the review of the newly-translated "Algerian Chronicles" of
Albert Camus. Pretty wretched stuff, and worth reading also for latter-day
parallels.
