November 9th, 1938 the German pogroms known as Kristallnacht began—synagogues and Jewish business were torched, glass broken, Jews were beaten, some were murdered, and about 30,000 were sent to concentration camps.

For the 75th Anniversary of this organized terror, Berlin has a number of exhibitions, including one at Sachsenhausen, a former concentration camp an hour’s S-Bahn away. Sure to be devastating, as it must. “Never forget”.
