Kristallnacht Remembrance at HMC
On Nov. 9-10, 1938, the Nazis staged violent pogroms — state-sanctioned, anti-Jewish riots — against the Jewish communities of Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland. These events came to be known as Kristallnacht (commonly translated as “Night of Broken Glass”), a reference to the broken windows of synagogues, Jewish-owned stores, community centers, and homes plundered and destroyed that night.
To commemorate the anniversary, Dr. Eric Biles, a Holocaust survivor from Austria, will share his memories and experiences beginning at 12:15 p.m. Nov. 9, followed by a docent-led tour at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills. Free with museum admission.
