7:00pm [7:00pm] Kristallnacht Ceremony at the Colonial Theatre
Description:
Kristallnacht Commemoration at The Colonial Theatre in Keene, NH, Thursday, November 7th at 7:00pm Our community once again gathers to commemorate the events of “Kristallnacht”. During the night of November 9-10, 1938, a massive pogrom was orchestrated by the Nazi government throughout Germany and Austria. A total of 815 shops, 29 department stores, 171 residences, and 267 synagogues were destroyed and 91 Jews were killed. The shattered panes of glass that littered sidewalks, most of it coming from the shop windows of Jewish stores, gave the pogrom its name: Kristallnacht or “Night of Broken Glass.” This tragic night marked the Nazi’s first centrally organized operation of large-scale anti-Jewish violence and was a prelude to the coming Holocaust. In the days that followed, 25-30,000 Jewish men were arrested and taken to Germany’s concentration camps. This event has become an annual ritual where we remember the targets of Nazism, but also our responsibility to care for others in our midst in order to root our city in compassion and hospitality. As most public officials in Nazi Germany looked away, participated, or followed orders not to intervene during the November pogrom, it is indeed a powerful moment when our city officials stand with us and publicly rededicate themselves to their mission to serve, protect, and minister to all members of our community. The Colonial Theatre co-sponsors this annual event with the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide studies at Keene State College.
