On November 9, 1938, a two-day pogrom began during which the Nazis burned more than 1,400 synagogues and Jewish institutions in Germany and Austria on ‘Kristallnacht’ (The Night of Broken Glass), a critical moment in the chain of events that led to the Holocaust.

Today, November 9, 2020, the International and European March of the Living marks Kristallnacht with a message of unity and hope, through a unique international campaign. Under the title “Let There Be Light”, the International and European March of the Living  invites individuals, institutions and Houses of Worship across the world to keep their lights on during the night, as a symbol of solidarity and mutual commitment in the shared battle against anti-Semitism, racism, hatred and intolerance.
