Kristallnacht,  Six Decades Later

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/kristallnacht_six_decades_later_20011109

In April of last year, I received the following letter from the city of Graz, Austria, where I was born. "On November 9th, 2000, the newly erected synagogue in Graz will be returned to the Jewish community. The return of the synagogue is a visual appeal for forgiveness for the atrocities and unjust criminal actions that were dealt our Jewish fellow citizens in the year 1938. This new House of God for the Jewish Community in Graz, which now stands at the very same spot where the former synagogue stood, should be a symbol for new respect for human rights and human kindness here in our city."
