Each year the Holocaust Center sponsors a community program in remembrance of Kristallnacht (“Night of Broken Glass”), a series of attacks against Jews in Germany and Austria. On November 9–10, 1938 thousands of Jewish homes, shops, schools and synagogues were ransacked and destroyed, leaving the streets covered in pieces of smashed windows—the origin of the name “Night of Broken Glass.” That terrifying night marks the moment that should have erased any doubt about Hitler’s intentions. Jewish lives were in jeopardy, and clearly there would be further tragedy. Yet the world stood by in silence.
