Tea sandwiches served promptly at 1pm. Inge Oppenheimer, Political Theatre, and Discussion
Described as the night that changed history, Kristallnacht is still relevant seventy years later. Come and hear the story of Inge Oppenheimer, who is one of the last survivors from the dreadful attack on Jewish synagogues, homes, and businesses that night. Join the dialogue about what excuses or propaganda that were used to incite the violence and hate then and how propaganda is a tool to incite hate today.
Who should attend?
All who want to heighten their social consciousness and create new patterns of life at home, college, place of worship, and community. It is for those who want to make injustice visible and to liberate enslaving patterns of life in the world. This remembrance is for those who love history, Jewish studies, and inter-religious and social justice dialogue.
