WHAT: In commemoration of the anniversary of Kristallnacht, come hear Randi Biederman, co-author of Schindler’s Listed: The Search for My Father’s Lost Gold, discuss her husband Mark’s 20-year quest to find gold coins which his father’s family buried in their backyard in Poland just prior to being deported by the Nazis into concentration camps. His father survived the war but died when the author was a teenager, leaving him only with the knowledge that he had buried coins somewhere in Poland, and no information about his family.

What is Kristallnacht?
Kristallnacht is also known as the “Night of Broken Glass,” when on November 9-10, 1938, Nazis in Germany torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses and killed close to 100 Jews. Following that night conditions for German Jews grew increasingly worse and eventually Hitler and the Nazis carried out the systematic murder of millions of European Jews in what came to be known as the Holocaust.
