On November 9-10, 1938, Nazis burned synagogues, looted Jewish homes and businesses and murdered individuals in a nationwide pogrom called Kristallnacht (“Night of Broken Glass”). This year’s guest speaker is Eric W. Blaustein of Pittsburgh. He was born in Chemnitz, Germany in 1926 and grew up under the ever-worsening pressure of Nazi persecution, which lead to Kristallnacht and reached its apex with the physical extermination of the Jewish population. He was liberated from Buchenwald in 1945 by the U.S. Army. Also joining us for this special interfaith service are Holocaust survivors Jack Sittsamer, Shulamit Imber, Sam and Goldie Weinreb and Robert Mendler.
