cropped image of a Courage to Remember posterOn November 9-10, 1938 neighborhoods and homes of Jews in Austria and Germany were invaded by paramilitary Nazi units and Jews were beaten and rounded up. “The night of broken glass”- Kristallnacht – was widely reported and horrified the world.

Fifty years later the Simon Wiesenthal Center remembered the event with a series of stunning posters containing nearly 200 photographs.

McQuade Library’s copy of the series. donated by Dr. Max and Prof. Hilda Perlitsh, is on display at the Library November 12-16. McQuade’s copies are often loaned out to area schools for special educational programs. McQuade also has many print and online, adult and children’s books on the Holocaust to supplement.

Merrimack and the Braverman Center will have a service of remembrance Tuesday evening, November 13th at 7:00 p.m. in Cascia Hall. And on display in Sakowich Campus Center is a photo exhibit from Family Diversity Projects: “We Have Faith: LGBT Clergy and People of Faith Speak Out.”
