Exhibition Commemorating 80th Anniversary of Kristallnacht to Open in Berlin

BERLIN – An exhibition dedicated to a violent night of attacks carried out in Nazi Germany against Jewish homes, businesses and places of worship was on Tuesday getting ready to open to the public at a Berlin museum as part of events marking the 80th anniversary of “Kristallnacht,” or the Night of Broken Glass.

The exhibition at the Topography of Terror documentation center brings together a series of photographs depicting the violence that unfolded on the night of Nov. 9-10, 1938, when members of the Nazi Party’s paramilitary “Brownshirts” (SA) and German civilians targeted and ransacked buildings belonging to the Jewish community.

“Eighty years ago, the German state and Nazi Party instigated a campaign of terror against the country’s Jewish population,” Berlin’s museums site Museumsportal said. “This exhibition describes what happened.”

The exhibit runs from Nov. 7 to March 3 at the Topography of Terror facility, an outdoor and indoor museum space built at the site of the former headquarters of the Schutzstaffel Nazi paramilitary corps (better known as the SS) and “Gestapo” secret police.
