Solemn Anniversary of Kristallnacht

Today was the solemn anniversary of Kristallnacht in 1938 Germany, also called the “Night of Broken Glass.” 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to concentration camps, and those who weren't were terrified for their lives.  Around 100 Jewish people were murdered.  Kristallnacht marked the start of the violence against the Jewish people that would lead to the death of six million Jewish people during World War II.  Thousands of Jewish shops were destroyed that night, and it wasn't long afterward that Hitler unveiled the "Final Solution" to kill all Jewish people.

I wish many blessings to those affected by the Holocaust and their descendants, both living and dead, and the struggles the Jewish people still face everyday as a result of antisemitism.
