'Kristallnacht' and William Cooper's protest

Here's a story of protest that I knew nothing about before today but which deserves wider recognition.  'Kristallnacht' is the name given to the coordinated Nazi attack on Jews that occurred on the night of 9 - 10 November 1938.  The brutality was undeniable and it marked a clear turning point in the German treatment of Jews.  It provoked condemnation from governments around the world but the only private protest against this event was made by William Cooper of Melbourne.
