Kristallnacht (“The Night of Broken Glass”) occurred throughout Germany on November 9-10, 1938. This “spontaneous” pogrom, or violent attacks against Jews and Jewish property, resulted from the assassination of a German diplomat in Paris on November 7, 1938. The fall-out from this act led to one of the most infamous instances of mob violence in recorded history.
A memorial service in remembrance of Kristallnacht will be held on Sunday, November 12, 2017, at 2:00 PM. This year’s theme: Zachor which in Hebrew means “Remember.”
