The Night of Broken Glass: Tomorrow, 1938.
The Night of Broken Glass took place November 9th and 10th, 1938. Tomorrow will mark the 77th anniversary of Kristallnacht. This blog post seemed fitting considering we just entered the Holocaust in our Nazi Germany class. The article, Kristallnacht 75th Anniversary: Germans Commemorate Nazi ‘Night Of Broken Glass’ With Vigils And Tributes [PHOTOS] written by Andrew Berry in 2013, reads about the commemoration Germans held in honor of the victims of this night. Berry describes Kristallnacht as the precursor to the Holocaust. I was surprised when I realized we were starting this part of the class at the time it was beginning in Germany back in 1938. Berry also mentions how The Central Council of Jews in Germany, politicians, and citizens took part in remembering the night that began the Shoah. It would do well to read the article and check out some sources and the video with this post in light of the anniversary being tomorrow.
