The Belsize Square Synagogue choir will perform at Westminster Abbey in a service of solemn remembrance and hope on the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht.
Kristallnacht (in English, “night of glass”) was a series of coordinated attacks carried out by paramilitaries and civilians against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on 9th and 10th November 1938. The attacks left the streets covered with broken glass from the windows of Jewish-owned stores, buildings, and synagogues.
The service will feature personal testimonies and readings and music from the choirs of London synagogues, including our own Belsize Square.
Free tickets for the service, on Sunday 10th November 2013 at 6.30pm, are available online at https://kristallnacht.eventbrite.co.uk/.
