Lunch and Learn with Dr. Al Miller - Small Acts that make a Difference

'Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, was a pogrom against Jews throughout Nazi Germany, Austria and recently occupied areas of Czechoslovakia on November 9-10, 1938.  On that unforgettable night, Jewish homes, hospitals, and schools were ransacked, as the attackers demolished buildings with sledgehammers.  Over 1,000 synagogues were burned and over 7,000 Jewish businesses were destroyed or damaged.  When the evening was over, shards of broken glass littered the streets.

This year, on the 79th anniversary of the pogrom, we Remember Kristallnacht with a Lunch and Learn at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.  Please bring a brown bag lunch and join us to hear Dr. Al Miller talk about his family's experiences during Kristallnacht. You can get a preview of his talk in the video above. The event will be held on Thursday, November 9 from Noon till 1:00 PM.  We will be meeting in the HuenefeldRoom at the downtown branch of the library, 800 Vine Street.  Parking is available in the Garfield Garage, 11 West 9th Street or at parking meters on the streets.
