    (June 3, 1909-November 9, 1938)
    Joined the SA 'Brownshirts' (1933)
    Secretary to the German embassy in Paris (1935-1938)
    Shot by Herschel Grynszpan (November 7, 1938)
    Death sparked the beginning of Kristallnact (November 1938)
    He was a Nazi.
    He was murdered by Herschel Grynszpan, a young man disgruntled over the deportation of his parents by the Germans
    Since Grynszpan was Jewish, the Nazi Party used Vom Rath's death to inspire increased anti-semitism in the German people.
    The result was Kristallnact, a full day of government-sanctioned violence against Jews in Germany, during which thousands of innocent Jews were killed or arrested.
    He was only a junior diplomat, but the Nazis made him look like a fallen martyr.
    He died young.
    He, like countless others, was brainwashed by Hitler's propaganda into putting his trust into the Nazi Party.
    He suffered from intestinal problems.
