On the 82nd anniversary of Kristallnacht (9th Nov 2020), March of the Living UK & International ran a Global Interfaith Kristallnacht Campaign. This Kristallnacht commemoration was part of a global “Let There be Light” campaign where individuals, institutions, and Houses of Worship around the world were invited to keep their lights on during the night of November 9th as a symbol of solidarity and mutual commitment in the shared battle against antisemitism, racism, hatred, and intolerance.
The global campaign reached its peak on November 9th, the anniversary of Kristallnacht, with an impressive projection of collected messages on Jerusalem’s Old City walls and on the Coventry Cathedral in the UK.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson‘s message said: “That night of broken glass led to humanity’s darkest moment. Today we unite against anti-Semitism, racism and intolerance. We will never let the light go out.”
