Online Community-Wide Kristallnacht Commemoration

7:00PM - 8:00PM  

Online Community-Wide Kristallnacht Commemoration 


In partnership with The Jewish Federation of Somerset, Hunterdon, and Warren Counties, The JCC Holocaust Memorial and Education Center, The Shimon and Sara Birnbaum JCC, JEWISH LIFE, and Jewish Family Services, we are proud to present the film screening of Rebuilt From Broken Glass in commemoration of Kristallnacht. A discussion and Q&A will follow this 40-minute film with Holocaust survivor Fred Behrend and director Larry Hanover.

Fred Behrend witnessed the flames of Kristallnacht in 1938 at age 12, seeing synagogues on fire, and soon fled Nazi tyranny. Several years after entering America, he would earn a personal victory over the Nazis, teaching democracy as a GI to German POWs. At age 92, however, he discovered that a miracle still awaited: one that was exactly 80 years in the making. To find out more about Fred and this true miracle, please register:
