The National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education and the Office of Campus Ministry will hold Seton Hill University's annual Kristallnacht Remembrance Interfaith Service on Tuesday, November 6 in St. Joseph Chapel. On November 9 and 10, 1938, the Nazis burned synagogues, looted Jewish homes and businesses and murdered individuals throughout Germany, Austria and other Nazi controlled areas in a pogrom known as Kristallnacht, "the night of broken glass." This state inspired and sanctioned night of violence resulted in the deaths of 91 Jews, the looting of 7,000 businesses, the arrest of 30,000 Jewish males and the desecration or destruction of 267 synagogues. Further details will be announced at a later date.
Fee: Open to the public at no charge.
