JERUSALEM, Israel – This November 9th, 2022, marks 84 years since Kristallnacht – or the "night of broken glass."
That’s when the Nazis unleashed a wave of antisemitic violence on Germany’s Jewish community. The night was horrific. Rioters smashed the windows of Jewish businesses and synagogues. They also rounded up 30 thousand Jewish men and murdered at least 91 people.
This night was a precursor to the “final solution” when six million Jews died during the Holocaust. During those years, tragically many Christians remained silent. However, decades later many Christians are speaking up and standing with the Jewish people at a time of growing antisemitism around the world.
