European Rabbis March In Berlin

Some 200 Rabbis from all over Europe march towards the Brandenburg Gate and light candles in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, in Berlin, Germany, 12 November 2013. It is the first time that the Conference of European Rabbis is meeting in Berlin since Kristallnacht, when the Nazis burned synagogues, plundered Jewish businesses and started arresting Jews for deportation to concentration camps on 09 November 1938.

Organizers of the commemoration said that the candlelight procession was intended to give the rabbis the opportunity both individually and communally to reflect upon the horrors, and the anti-Jewish violence that was inflicted on the Jews during Kristallnacht 75 years ago.
