Times of Israel report on commemoration of Reichspogromnacht in Munich


Interview with Terry Swartzberg, the Munich-based Holocaust commemorator:

On Reichspogromnacht (that’s how we call it here), we – descendants of victims and of members of the Widerstand (Resistance) and my young people — Generation Commemoration — will be marching from the walls of Stadelheim — the prison in which 1200 members of the Resistance and Jews were executed — into the cemetery in which these people are buried along with 4000 inmates of Dachau.

We will be accompanied by commemorative music and images. We will pay homage at the graves of Hans and Sophie Scholl, Hans Leipelt and others, and then do a Faces for the Names upon the walls of the cemetery’s main hall.
