Default back windscreen on VW POLO

I closed the boot and the glass shattered. I didn't use excess force. Do you know why it would do this please? I didn't notice any damage before I opened it because it was covered in snow.

Closed the boot, some european words are so funny (sorry, no offence) the weight of the snow could cause it to crack, and when you shut it, it shut it just hard enough and caused it to shatter.

Probably the weight of the snow plus how brittle materials get in the snow caused it to break.
