November 9 Marks Highs and Lows in German History

November 9 is a key date in Germany's chequered 20th century history. It isn't just the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Berlin Wall. On this day in 1938, Nazi Germany launched a pogrom against its Jewish population in which more than 2,000 people died. SPIEGEL ONLINE looks at three events that occurred on this fateful date before 1989.


I think it is very important to remember also these sad and horrible days in German history and those who lost there lifes and suffered so much, caused through this dark time in German history. As Germans we have the responsibility to make sure that something like this will never happen again and also to stand in our foreign and international politic for freedom and human rights everywhere.
