The Value of Glass—Sun Nov 9, 2:00 pm @Hillel

by Gerald Sorokin | Oct 30, 2014

"The Value of Glass": A program in commemoration of Kristallnacht

Kristallnacht

Sunday, November 9, 2014, 2:00 pm

Hillel (122 E. Market St.)


On November 9, 1938, the Nazis carried out a series of coordinated attacks against Jewish communities across Germany and Austria that became known as Kristallnacht ("The Night of Broken Glass"). Three days later, Nazi officials met to evaluate the success of Kristallnacht in solving "the Jewish problem."

Join us on the anniversary of Kristallnacht for a staged reading of the actual minutes from that meeting. After the performance, UI history professor Elizabeth Heineman will lead a guided discussion. A reception will follow.

Admission is FREE and open to the public.
