Merkel speaks out over anti-Semitism

Yorkshire Post - - UK & ABROAD -

Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel has warned against tol­er­at­ing mod­ern-day an­tiSemitism and racism in a Ber­lin syn­a­gogue as she marked the 80th an­niver­sary of the Nazis’ purge of Jewish peo­ple on the in­fa­mous “Night of Bro­ken Glass”.

On Novem­ber 9 1938 – known as Kristall­nacht – Jews were ter­rorised through­out Ger­many and Aus­tria.

At least 91 peo­ple were killed, hun­dreds of syn­a­gogues burned down, 7,500 Jewish busi­nesses van­dalised, and up to 30,000 Jewish men ar­rested.
