Remembering the November Pogrom
At 5 pm on Wednesday, November 9, we will be observing a minute’s silence in memory of the victims of the organized violence against the Jews on November 9 and 10, 1938. This pogrom marked the start of the exclusion and systematic persecution of Jewish citizens, leading up to the Shoah.
After the service we will be showing the portrait series Devoted to Life by the young photographer Helena Schätzle. She accompanied Shoah survivors and their families in Israel for several months and captured belated moments of happiness in a traumatic post-survival life. The series won the 2016 Alfred Fried Photography Award and Peace Medal.
