KRISTALLNACHT REMEMBRANCE
Pittsfield, 2 p.m.
Temple Anshe Amunim at 26 Broad St. will host a unique artistic observance commemorating the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht with readings of memoirs, poetry  and drama. The performance, directed by Barbara Waldinger with musical accompaniment by Paul Green, is the first time the temple has remembered historically-significant Kristallnacht with such a program. On the night of Nov. 9, 1938, following the assassination of a German official in Paris at the hands of a Jewish teenager, violence against Jews broke out across Germany and Austria.  While ascribed to the wrath of the German people, the demonstrations were in fact organized by German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and other Nazis.  In two days, over 250 synagogues were burned, over 7,000 Jewish businesses trashed, Jewish cemeteries, hospitals, schools, and homes looted, and dozens beaten to death while police and fire brigades stood by.  For the broken windows that littered the streets, the pogroms became known as Kristallnacht, the "Night of Broken Glass." A donation of $30 is requested ($20 for Temple members; students admitted free).  Admission includes a discount coupon to Jae’s for the evening of the performance.  Please call 413-442-5910 for reservations.
