Germany: Berlin marches on 79th anniversary of Kristallnacht

Around 400 people of various left-wing organisations marched through the Berlin neighbourhood of Moabit, in memory of the victims of antisemitism on the 79th anniversary of the 1938 Kristallnacht, Thursday. Israeli flags flew beside Antifascist flags, with signs and banners stating «Never again Germany,» and «against forgetting.» Kristallnacht, which translates as the «the night of the Broken... Еще Glass,» was a state-sponsored anti-Jewish pogrom instigated by the Nazis on 9-10 November 1938. The event is named after the destruction of Jewish property during the pogrom, in which synagogues, shop fronts and homes in their thousands were smashed up. Around 30,000 Jewish males were rounded up and sent to concentration camps and over 500 were murdered on that same night.
