The following, with the indicated references, is from

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_II,_German_Emperor#Life_in_exile

<< Wilhelm was also appalled at the Kristallnacht of 9–10 November
1938, saying "I have just made my views clear to Auwi [Wilhelm's
fourth son] in the presence of his brothers. He had the nerve to
say that he agreed with the Jewish pogroms and understood why they
had come about. When I told him that any decent man would describe
these actions as gangsterisms, he appeared totally indifferent. He
is completely lost to our family".[69] He also stated, "For the
first time, I am ashamed to be a German."[70]>>
