Join us in remembering "Reichspogromnacht", the "Night of Broken Glass". On November 9 to November 10, 1938, Nazis in Germany torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses, killing many Jews.
This live virtual program presents a film screening and discussion about a treasury of music by Jewish musicians destroyed during "Reichspogromnacht" or "Night of Broken Glass" that was almost forgotten – but miraculously found!
The German Ambassador to the US, H.E. Emily Haber, the German Ambassador to Canada, H.E. Sabine Sparwasser and Marilyn Sinclair from Liberation75 will be joined by panelists Dr. Alan Bern, Dr. Rainer Lotz, Sasha Lurje as well as moderators Laila Biali and Ben Wittman to screen the documentary film Beyond All Memories - The Semer Ensemble and the Rescued Treasure of Jewish Musical Life in Nazi Berlin (written and directed by Christoph Weinert) which will be followed by a discussion and audience Q&A.
The film screening, panel discussion and audience Q & A is free to attend. Registration is required.
