An evening of words and music to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Krystallnacht

Manchester Jewish Museum is holding ‘An evening of words and music to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Krystallnacht’ on Sunday 9th November at 7.30 p.m.

Krystallnacht- literally meaning ‘the night of broken glass’, was a Nazi terror campaign.

On the 9th and 10th November 1938, roughly 400 synagogues in Germany were set on fire, while SA troops destroyed 7,000 Jewish stores and businesses. More than 90 people were killed and over 26,000 men were deported to concentration camps.

This remembrance service will include survivors’ recollections of the horrific circumstances they had to endure under the Nazi regime.

There will be music and readings with the participation of the younger generation, from King David High School, as it is the responsibility of the younger generation to carry the message forward once the survivors’ are no longer with us- particularly in the light of the history revisionists who try to tell us the Holocaust never happened.

This will be an emotional and hopefully inspiring evening and we are hoping that all members of the Manchester community will join us in remembering this horrific event.

Tickets are free but we recommend that visitors book in advance to secure their seat.
