Holocaust museum to hold Kristallnacht remembrance program

Posted: Updated:
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) -

A suburban Detroit museum will host a program remembering the Nov. 9-10, 1938 Nazi-inspired violence targeting Jews in Germany and Austria.

A short documentary on Kristallnacht -- the Night of Broken Glass -- also will debut Monday night at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, northwest of Detroit.

Hundreds of Jewish stores were looted and fire was set to more than 200 synagogues during Kristallnacht. About 100 Jews were killed. More than 30,000 Jewish men were rounded up and later sent to concentration camps.

A panel discussion and preview of the center's Synagogues in Germany exhibit will be held Monday. A Kristallnacht survivor also will take part in a question and answer session.

The 55,000-square-foot Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984.
