E-NEWS: Silence Kills! Resist Against Intolerance!


9 November International Day Against Fascism and Anti-Semitism

9 November 1938 was the date of the "Kristallnacht" pogrom in Nazi
Germany. Three days earlier, on November 6th, a Jew, Herschel
Grynszpan, who was angry at the increasingly repressive measures being
adopted in Germany against Jews took revenge by shooting the diplomat
Ernst vom Rath at the German embassy in Paris. The diplomat died two
days later and news of his death reached Germany on 9 November. This
started a massive nationwide pogrom, secretly organised by a section
of the Nazi party, which left many Jews dead in the streets, and
hundreds of Jewish businesses and synagogues burnt, smashed and
destroyed. It marked the beginning of the Holocaust. This year's
commemorations will focus on resistance to intolerance and on the
hatred that started long before WW II and continued long after.
