Gedenkstunde zum 9. November 1938, der (nunmehr) sog. “Pogromnacht” in der Synagoge Augsburg

Hour of Commemoration for the “Kristallnacht” in the Synagogue of Augsburg, 77 years after 9th of November 1938.

Since many people meanwhile understand “Kristallnacht” as rather cynical, more people prefer to dub it “pogrom night (Nacht). The Russian word “pogrom” however actually means thunder-storm, tempest and the like, what on second thought is likewise belittling …

As in in most other towns also in Augsburg the actual attacks took place in the night and morning hours of 10th of November the birthday of German religion founder Lex … hm … Martin Luther.
