Hundreds of local residents will gather to commemorate one of the most tragic days in modern Jewish history, as the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, a Committee of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, observes the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, on Sunday, November 7, at 6 p.m.
Widely considered to be a foreshadowing of Hitler’s campaign to annihilate the Jewish people, Kristallnacht was marked by a series of coordinated attacks in Germany and parts of Austria on November 9-10, 1938, which caused the deaths of 91 Jews and the incarceration of 30,000 in concentration camps. The streets were covered with broken glass from the shattered windows of Jewish-owned buildings, stores and synagogues that were vandalized and looted during the attacks.
The Kristallnacht program is sponsored by the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, a Committee of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation
