Baden-Baden – the Fate of Our Ancestors

November 9, 2015

#‎tdih‬ November 9-10, 1938. Reichspogromnacht (Kristallnacht) in Germany and Austria. Organized terrorism by Nazis against Jews, marking an escalation in the violence with the deportation of 30,000 to concentration camps. As in this photo in Baden-Baden, too many in the towns — and the world — looked on. For middle school students, one book we recommend is “Tropical Secrets” by Margarita Engle about Jews who found refuge in Cuba after their ship had been turned away by the U.S.: Here are more photos from Baden-Baden from Yad Vashem:

There are those who say that none of this ever took place.  What confounds me is what we are doing in Palestine.  Walls and terror against Palestinians makes no sense given our heritage.
