COMMUNITY KRISTALLNACHT EVENT ... Thursday, November 7th @ 7:30pm. ($10)
The story of a teenager whose act of defiance 75 years ago had dire international consequences. On the morning of November 7, 1938, Herschel Grynszpan, a desperate seventeen-year-old Jewish refugee, walked into the German embassy in Paris and shot a Nazi diplomat. Two days later the Third Reich exploited the murder to unleash Kristallnachtits horrific campaign of terror against Germany's Jewish citizens. Biblical scholar and newspaper columnist, Kirsch creates a compelling biography and page-turning historical thriller, re-examining the details of one of World War II's most enigmatic cases.
