Holocaust Survivor to speak for 75th Anniversary of Kristallnacht

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Norman M. Fain Hillel Center 6 Fraternity Cir, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI 02881, USA

As it is described in static history books, 75 years ago Nazis in Germany torched synagogues and vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses. In the aftermath of what became known as Kristallnacht, the "Night of Broken Glass," Nov. 9-10, 1938, some 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to Nazi concentration camps.

Alice Goldstein did not just read about Kristallnacht, she was an eyewitness. Goldstein will speak about her experiences, consider how such atrocities could happen in a modern democratic state and what lessons can make a difference.
