B’nai B’rith International President Gary P. Saltzman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin have issued the following statement:
Throughout November, B’nai B’rith International will hold commemorations across the world to remember Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass. In 1938, on Nov. 9 and 10, Nazis terrorized Jewish neighborhoods throughout Germany, Austria and parts of Czechoslovakia by killing at least 96 Jews, vandalizing thousands of Jewish businesses, and burning and destroying more than a thousand synagogues.
In Latin America, commemorations are expected to be held in Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Panamá and Uruguay.
