Please join the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center and Iona University for the Annual Kristallnacht Commemoration on November 15th at 7 p.m.

On the night of November 9, 1938, a hurricane of government-sponsored anti-Jewish violence erupted throughout Nazi Germany. How did President Roosevelt respond to the pogrom? Was there anything the United States could have done to help the Jews?
