Germany: Berliners mark 82nd anniv of Kristallnacht

Dozens of people gathered at the Levetzowstrasse Deportation Memorial in Berlin's Moabit district on Monday, to mark the events of Kristallnacht. Mourners lit candles and laid flowers where once stood the city's largest synagogue, which in 1941 served as a gathering point for Jews ahead of their deportation to the concentration camps established by the Nazi regime. Since 1988, the site is home to an obelisk bearing the deportation dates, as well as to a train carriage, and a marble statue. Monday's ceremony was held to commemorate the anniversary of the night between 9 and 10 November 1938, when Jew-owned shops, synagogues, and buildings were robbed and destroyed, in a wave of violence that took place in Germany, Austria, and the areas of former Czechoslovakia.
