November 10 | 7:00 PM
Wallace All Faiths Chapel | Fish Interfaith Center
For the eighth year, Chapman University gathers as an interfaith community to commemorate Kristallnacht.
We remember the violence and destruction that swept across Germany on November 9-10, 1939, and the terror, arrests, and deportations that followed.
We also remember the courageous people from many walks of life who dared to defy Nazi authority to become resisters and rescuers. Among them was Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi Party, who in the latter days of the war risked his own life to save the lives of some 1,200 Jews working in his enamelware and munitions factories, first in Krakow, Poland, and later in Brünnlitz in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.
