Antisemitism on the Rise as Holocaust Survivors Remember Kristallnacht




On November 9-10, 1938, Nazis terrorized Jewish communities across Germany and Austria in what became known as “The Night of Broken Glass”—Kristallnacht. It was 84 years ago this week, but for the few remaining survivors of the Holocaust, the memories are still vivid and serve as a stark reminder of antisemitism’s end results when it is unchecked and fanned into flame. The Nazis were celebrating, shockingly enough, the birthday of the reformer Martin Luther. Of course, they were not celebrating his 95 theses, but his antisemitism, where he recommended the persecution, explusion and even murder of "misbehaving" Jews.
