Gather with us to observe Kristallnacht (The Night of Broken Glass) also called the November Pogrom which marks the intensification of a regime of terror against the Jews of the Third Reich. The event will include commemorative songs and prayers followed by a survivor panel of local Holocaust survivors moderated by new CEO, Talli Dippold. In addition, there will be a communal art project.
Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass) is the name given to the violent attacks (pogroms) against the businesses, places of worship and homes of the Jews throughout Germany and in the annexed countries (Austria and Sudetenland) on November 9 and 10, 1938. This violence was implemented by the Nazi leaders. The sound of broken glass heard during this attack explains the name given to the event.
