Kristallnacht Remembrance Takes Place on Nov. 9 on the Town Common

November 1, 2023

Kristallnacht is the night in 1938 in Germany when Nazis broke Jewish shop windows, desecrated temples, and brutalized and killed Jewish citizens. It was a turning point in the Third Reich, marking the shift from antisemitic rhetoric and legislation to violent, aggressive anti-Jewish measures that would culminate in the Holocaust. 

Each year to commemorate Kristallnacht – “The Night of Broken Glass” – the Bedford Interfaith Clergy, Bedford Jewish Community, Bedford residents, and neighbors from nearby towns gather to light candles, toll the bell, and be together in community and solidarity. 

People gather to mourn, to remember, and to strengthen resolve to resist such hatred and violence in our own time. 

The Kristallnacht Remembrance takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9 on the steps of First Parish in Bedford on the Town Common. All are invited to attend.
