The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh and the Rauh Jewish History Program and Archives present a program in commemoration of Kristallnacht, the November Pogrom that swept across Germany on November 9 and 10, 1938, destroying synagogues and Jewish-owned property.  

Witness the story of a German-Jewish immigrant to Pittsburgh, Eric Moses, and his family members who remained in Berlin. An extensive collection of photographs, documents, and letters carefully filed by Eric Moses and kept for two generations form the basis of the program. The collection was acquired by the Holocaust Center and the Rauh Archives in 2016 from Doris Moses Kennedy, who will be in attendance.

Some seats may be available at the door.
