LET THERE BE LIGHT
INTERNATIONAL MARCH OF THE LIVING GLOBAL INTERFAITH INITIATIVE TO COMMEMORATE KRISTALLNACHT
On November 9, 1938, a two-day pogrom began during which the Nazis burned more than 1,400 synagogues and Jewish institutions in Germany and Austria on ‘Kristallnacht’ (The Night of Broken Glass), a critical moment in the chain of events that led to the Holocaust.
Today, Houses of Worship are still under attack around the world.
On November 9, 2020, International March of the Living invites individuals, institutions and Houses of Worship across the world to keep their lights on during the night of November 9th, as a symbol of solidarity and mutual commitment in the shared battle against anti-Semitism, racism, hatred and intolerance.
As part of this global campaign, people are encouraged to share messages of hope and a commitment to shine a light over the darkness of hate. Visit the campaign website at www.motl.org/let-there-be-light.
