The 74th Anniversary of Kristallnacht

On Wednesday, November 14, over 100 New Jerseyans gathered to mark the 74th anniversary of Kristallnacht at the New Jersey State House in Trenton.

Four members of the Jewish War Veterans of America-Post 126 opened the ceremony with the Posting of Colors.

Holocaust survivors stood alongside New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education members (many of whom are children of survivors) and distinguished guests as memorial candles were lit in honor of the 6 million Jews who perished under Nazi rule.

Edwin Ganz, Kristallnacht survivor, looks on as Mercer County Holocaust-Genocide Resource Center Advisory Commission Members, Dr. Vera Goodkin and Cantor David Wisnia, share a smile of comfort and friendship.
