TODAY IN HISTORY
In 1935, the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) was formed by the unskilled workers in mass-production industries. It merged with AFL in 1955 to jointly face new developments such as automation.
In 1938, more than 30,000 Jews were arrested and synagogues and Jewish businesses were destroyed throughout Germany in what has become known as “Kristallnacht,” or “Night of the Broken Glass.” Around 2,000-2,500 deaths were directly or indirectly attributable to the pogrom. In 1942, Werner Janowski, a German secret agent, was arrested after being landed at the Gaspe town of New Carlisle, Que., by submarine.
