On the night of November 9, 1938, nine-year-old Susan Warsinger’s life changed forever. That night, the Nazi regime orchestrated a wave of violence against Jews, a deadly turning point in Holocaust history known as Kristallnacht. Susan’s German neighbors betrayed her family—throwing rocks through her bedroom window and even ripping down a lamppost and ramming it through their front door while a police officer watched. Her father was among 30,000 men arrested simply for being Jewish. Join Holocaust survivor and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum volunteer Susan Warsinger to learn about her experience and the moment her parents decided to send her away to try to save her.
