March of the Living launches global interfaith initiative to commemorate Kristallnacht

 A two-day pogrom began on Nov. 9, 1938, during which the Nazis burned more than 1,400 synagogues and Jewish institutions in Germany and Austria. Indeed, Kristallnacht (“The Night of Broken Glass”) was a critical moment in the chain of events that led to the Holocaust.

This year, March of the Living will mark Kristallnacht with a message of unity and hope through an international campaign titled “Let There Be Light.” It is inviting individuals, institutions and houses of worship worldwide to keep their lights on during the night of Nov. 9 as a symbol of solidarity and mutual commitment in the battle against anti-Semitism, racism, hatred and intolerance.
