During the night of November 9, 1938, violent anti-Jewish pogroms broke out across Germany and its incorporated territories including Austria. Nazi officials concealed the organized nature of the attack in which mobs desecrated synagogues, vandalized Jewish-owned businesses, murdered 91 Jews, and sent 30,000 Jewish men to concentration camps. As a nationwide, brutal mass attack on Jews simply based on their ethnicity, Kristallnacht was a significant turning point in the Holocaust.
Join us to hear from German Holocaust survivor Paul Kester, historian Dr. Alan Steinweis, author of “Kristallnacht 1938,” and Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Los Angeles Stefan Schneider to mark the anniversary.
