2021 Kristallnacht Observance Event

A massive, coordinated attack on Jews throughout the German Reich on the night of November 9-10, 1938, has come to be known as Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass. It starkly signaled a movement towards the Final Solution, a systematic program of genocide designed to annihilate every Jew and others in Europe.

In addition to remembering, the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago annually commits to the denunciation of anti-Semitism now and in the history of our tradition, and seeks to join together people of all faiths in the work of the world’s mending, the healing of the nations.

Please register below. Registrants may participate in person at the Augustana Chapel or online via Zoom. All registered individuals will receive a Zoom link to participate in advance of the event via e-mail, too.
