Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations

Kristallnacht-Holocaust Remembrance Week

9:00am EST November 11, 2013

Holocaust Remembrance Week
November 11 - November 15, 2013

At a time of horror in the middle of the 20th century, the silence of the world made possible the monstrous crime of genocide, the attempted murder of a whole people for no other reason that they were a particular type of people, a people called by God the “Chosen People”: the Jews.

Join us to mark the 75th anniversary of these tragic events as we renounce silent indifference and pledge to confront discrimination and prejudice in support of the Human Family.
