Synagogue of Siegen, Germany, was burning during Kristallnacht. (Wikicommons)

On the 82nd anniversary of the infamous Kristallnacht pogrom, it’s important to remember the lessons learned. Never again!

On November 9-10, 1938, Nazis began destroying thousands of Jewish properties and homes throughout Germany. The onslaught becomes known as Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass.”

Words have meaning and a very real effect on the world.

It is our duty to remember, and to stand up to hate speech, propaganda and lies.
