In Cheb and Marienbad, ethnic-German towns in the Sudeten region of Czechsoslovakia, people burn synagogues to the ground. During the Sudeten crisis of 1938, synagogues all across the Sudetenland are attacked, vandalized and burned down by Germans.

When Germany is given control over Sudetenland, most of the 20,000 Jews living in this region flee to the other areas of Czechoslovakia, still independent of the Nazis for a little while longer.

Those few who choose to remain are quickly arrested by the Nazis and shipped off to concentration camps.
