This year’s Commemoration of Kristallnacht will be on Tuesday, November 9, at 7:00 PM. The program, Kristallnacht and the Tulsa Race Massacre, will take place virtually.
Dr. Joshua Shanes, Associate Director of Jewish Studies at the University of Charleston, will discuss the history and origins of pogroms, detail the tragedy of Kristallnacht, and discuss America’s own history of pogroms through the Tulsa Race Massacre.
Join us and our partner, the Jewish Museum of Maryland, to learn about the connection between the two pogroms, and how what happened in the United States influenced the events of Kristallnacht. The presentation will be followed by an opportunity for questions.
