CSE Hosts 29th Annual Kristallnacht Commemoration

On the night of November 9, 1938, Nazis launched an unprecedented attack on Jews throughout Germany. While law enforcement officers stood idly by, Nazis burned synagogues and vandalized Jewish owned businesses. The damage was so extensive that this event became known as Kristallnacht, or the night of broken glass.

To remember this night, which claimed nearly 100 Jewish lives, the College of Saint Elizabeth's Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education hosted the 29th Annual Kristallnacht Commemoration on Monday, November 4. Dr. Helen J Streubert, the president of CSE, set the tone for the event in her welcoming address.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Center is to provide education and remembrance of the Holocaust and other genocides, to facilitate Catholic/Jewish dialogue and interfaith understanding, and to do so with high academic and scholarly standards, as well as standards consistent with the teachings of Vatican Council II.

The Center aims to provide a variety of programs, courses, resources, and other educational opportunities to CSE undergraduate and graduate students and the community, as well as for teachers to enable them to help their own students meet the New Jersey State mandate for education about the Holocaust and genocide.
