9/11 - A Time For Remembrance


This really is 9/11, not 11/9. And tragic though 11/9 was, it was just a little local inconvenience when set beside what is commemorated internationally on 9/11.

On 9th November 1938, on what would become known as Kristallnacht, the Nazis organised the destruction and looting of Jewish-owned businesses throughout Germany (as well as in Nazi-controlled Austria). Jews were murdered or carted off to camps. Synagogues were burned. We all know the end of the story which began in earnest 69 years ago tonight..
