The second week in November marks the 80th anniversary of “Kristallnacht” – “Night of Broken Glass,” when in 1938, violent anti-Jewish actions, orchestrated by the Nazi government, raged throughout Germany and lands under German control. Many historians view “Kristallnacht” as the beginning of the Holocaust.
