Kristallnacht 75th anniversary

October 27th, 2013

Over the weekend of 8-10 November, two special events will mark the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht.  We will hold our own annual memorial service in the synagogue on Friday 8 November at 6:45 pm, and then on Sunday 10 November the Belsize Synagogue Choir will take part in a special service of Solemn Remembrance and Hope at Westminster Abbey.

These services commemorate the Kristallnacht (“night of broken glass”) orchestrated Nazi attacks against Jews, synagogues and Jewish businesses that took place across Germany and in Austria on 9-10 November 1938, a foretaste of the more terrible horrors yet to come.

Note: All tickets for the Westminster Abbey service have already been booked.
