We hope you can join us at this free event!
Join us in remembering Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass”. On November 9 to November 10, 1938, Nazis in Germany torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses, killing many Jews.
This program presents a film screening and discussion about a treasury of Jewish music destroyed during Kristallnacht that was almost forgotten – but miraculously found!
