How it all began

Kristallnacht: The night of broken glass. This event in history is thought to have been what started it all, the Holocaust. Hearing Kaddish at the memorial helped me to feel strangely closer to those people and when we lit the candles and listened to the music, you could even imagine the sound of the breaking glass. I was wondering just how many lives were changed forever that night. Did they know what was to come? How can people be so cruel? I doubt these questions can be answered, but they’re out there for others to consider at least. Who knows, maybe I’ll get a better understanding of things during Spring Break.
