Germany recalls Kristallnacht pogrom

Germany will Friday remember victims of the Nazi pogrom that heralded the start of the Third Reich's drive to wipe out Jews, at a time when anti-Semitism is resurgent in the West.

Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Frank-Walter Steinmeier will join Jewish leaders at Germany's biggest synagogue to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, also known as the Night of Broken Glass.

Steinmeier will make a speech at the Bundestag marking one of Germany's darkest days, but also two other momentous events in the country's history that also fell on November 9 -- the end of the imperial government in 1918 and the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

The grimmest of the three dates was that in 1938, when Nazi thugs murdered at least 90 Jews, torched 1,400 synagogues across Germany and Austria, and destroyed Jewish-owned shops and businesses.

4. Will they commemorate with a Jew in a Box again?

http://newsfeed.time.com/2013/04/04/jew-in-a-box-exhibition-causes-a-stir-in-germany/

There are fewer than 200,000 Jews living in Germany today, out of a total population of 82 million — meaning that few Germans have any first-hand understanding of Jewish culture. But an exhibit at Berlin’s Jewish Museum that attempts to combat that lack of knowledge is causing quite a stir regardless.

The show, entitled ‘The Whole Truth,’ consists of a Jewish man or woman, seated inside a glass box, answering visitors’ questions for two hours about Jewish life and culture.)

The exhibition was inspired by the many questions left in the museum’s visitors book since 2001, which the curators stripped down to the thirty most commonly asked questions. These vary from politically incorrect questions about common Jewish stereotypes to a simple matter of wanting to know how to become a Jew.

For the Jewish Museum’s curators the point of the exhibition is to “confront various questions about Judaism and being Jewish.” Below the box a line of text reads, “Are there still Jews in Germany?”

But reactions to the exhibition, which also includes other installations and displays, have been decidedly mixed. Speaking with the Associated Press, Stephan Kramer, a prominent figure in the Berlin Jewish community, asked, “Why don’t they give him a banana and a glass of water, turn up the heat and make the Jew feel really cozy in his glass box?” Kramer said he was approached to participate but turned the offer down. Others too have described the exhibition as “degrading” and not helpful to German-Jewish relations.

He later served at Crete in the Fallschirmjager and paid for Joe Louis's healthcare, even paying out of pocket for Joe Louis's Funeral in 1981
