Kristallnacht Commemoration: "November 1938 as a Turning Point?" with Peter Hayes
|Date||Tue, Nov 10, 6:00pm - 7:00pm|
Join Dr. Peter Hayes for the 12th Frederick M. Schweitzer Lecture, November 1938 as a Turning Point?. Dr. Hayes’ talk will focus on the November 1938 incident known as Kristallnacht, when Nazis in Germany set fire to synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools, and businesses and killed close to 100 Jews. In the aftermath of Kristallnacht, also called the “Night of Broken Glass,” approximately 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to Nazi concentration camps. There will be a short performance by the West Point Jewish Chapel Choir before the lecture.
Peter Hayes, Ph.D.
This year’s Kristallnacht commemoration is co-sponsored by the Kupferberg Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College; the Holocaust, Genocide, and Interfaith Education Center at Manhattan College; and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at West Point Academy.
