As we remember the horrific events of November 9-10, 1938, find out why the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and other historians and scholars prefer to use the name “November Pogroms.” This program, sponsored by The Generations After, will feature survivor testimony and discussions of the events in Germany by Dr. Michael Brenner of American University, in Austria by Dr. Ilana Offenberger of the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, and in Czechoslovakia by Lukas Pribyl, Counsellor at the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington, DC, heading the Public Diplomacy Department. Music, poetry, and a film clip of the burning of a synagogue in Buhe,l Germany, will also be featured. It will end with a shofar blast by a child of Holocaust survivors as a symbol of hope. There is no fee for the program.
