The Florida Holocaust Museum’s annual Kristallnacht Commemoration will remember the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the November Pogrom of 1938, with a commemoration service, including prayers and a candle lighting by survivors and their descendants.
Immediately following the service, keynote speaker Stacy Bernard Davis, Deputy Special Envoy on Holocaust Issues at the U.S. Department of State, will speak on the state of Holocaust Education in a time of rising antisemitism.
Kristallnacht owes its name to the shards of shattered glass that littered the streets of Germany and Austria following a coordinated series of attacks on Jewish-owned businesses, homes, and synagogues.
This commemoration is open to the public and free of charge.
