|The Anjou pogrom (?)|
In French sites, they call it "Le pogrom de 1483". I could not find any English name for it, but it happened in Anjou (French province with large Jewish settlements) in 1483:
In 1236 Christian crusaders invaded the Jewish settlements of Anjou and Poitou -- especially those at Bordeaux and Angoulкme -- and bade all Jews be baptized; when the Jews refused, the crusaders trampled 3000 to death under their horses’ hoofs. Pope Gregory IX condemned the slaughter, but did not raise the dead.

|Even though "Angevin Massacre" or "Angevin Supper" are probably more correct technically speaking, in my context I prefer your less formal version. Lots of thanks to you and all the others. |

Anschluss pogrom / Night of the Broken Glass
I am not sure. Could this be referring to the Anschluss pogrom or to the Night of the Broken Glass.
Hope this helps anyway,
Pronounced As: pogrm, pogrom , Russian term, originally meaning "riot, that came to be applied to a series of violent attacks on Jews in Russia in the late 19th and early 20th cent. Pogroms were few before the assassination of Alexander II in 1881; after that, with the connivance of, or at least without hindrance from, the government, there were many pogroms throughout Russia. Soldiers and police often looked on without interfering. These pogroms encouraged the first emigration of Russian Jews to the United States. After 1882 there were few pogroms until 1903, when there was an extremely violent three-day pogrom at Chisinau resulting in the death of 45 Jews. Although it has not been conclusively proved that the czarist government organized pogroms, the government's anti-Semitic policies certainly encouraged them. After the abortive revolution of 1905, pogroms increased in number and violence. With the success of the Bolshevik Revolution, pogroms ceased in the Soviet Union; they were revived in Germany and Poland after Adolf Hitler attained power.
*The Year 1938: from "Anschluss" to November pogrom
The "Anschluss" pogrom of 1938: Suicide as the only way out
When the German army's invasion of Austria began at 5.30 a.m. on March 12, 1938, violence against the Jewish population of Austria broke out: windows of houses and shops were smashed, and SA men, members of the Hitler Youth and people, whose sole authority was a swatika armband or a Nazi badge, arrested, beat and humiliated Jewish men and women, and forced them to scrub pavements and the like. During the first few weeks after the "Anschluss", Jews in Austria were considered fair game. Hatred, an arrogance steeped in a belief in a superior "Aryan master race", envy and "socially acceptable" anti-Semitism were expressed through violence and a crucible against the Jews that was reminiscent of the Middle Ages.
A Pogrom in Germany and Austria
("Crystal Night" or "Night of the Broken Glass"), pogrom conducted throughout Germany and Austria on November 9 and 10, 1938. It was officially presented as a spontaneous outburst provoked by the assassination of the third secretary of the German embassy in Paris, Ernst vom Rath, by a seventeen - year - old Polish Jew, Herschel Grynszpan. The name Kristallnacht comes from Kristallglas (beveled plate glass) and refers to the broken shop windows of Jewish stores.
