Kristallnacht: A Family Recollection


A village employee who had accompanied us said proudly, “Soon we will be placing a memorial stone here.” My father answered in disgust, “You burn our synagogues, force us out of our homes and try to exterminate us. And now you think a stone marker will make everything all right?” He shook his head. “We Jews are still here and will never forget.”

Now, seventy-five years after Kristallnacht and as my father’s third yahrzeit approaches, his words still echo in my mind.

“We Jews are still here and we will never forget.”
