Winnipeg – A community-wide Kristallnacht commemoration was held, with a nearly full house turnout last Wednesday. On this same date, in 1938, mobs took to the streets in Germany, Austria, and Sudetenland, attacking Jews in the street, their homes, workplaces and synagogues. Vera Fast, local author and noted historian, recently published Children’s Exodus – A History of the Kindertransport. At the commemoration, she presented The Kindertransport and Beyond event.
