Kristallnacht: Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein retells his mother's experience of the night that organized hostility against Jewish symbols began

The Simon Wiesenthal Center commemorated the 71's anniversary of 
Germany's "Night of Breaking Glass" or Kristallnacht with an event at 
the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles featuring author of 
"Hitler's Willing Executioners," Harvard Prof. Daniel Goldhagen.
Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, the son of a Holocaust survivor 

(and the Wiesenthal Center's Director of Interfaith Affairs)
began the evening by retelling his mother's testimonial of the events 
of the night of 9 November 1938. He then offered a prayer, in Hebrew, 
to the souls murdered by the Nazi culture, brainwashed against 
the Jews vilified by their society.
