Something it would be well to remember.

We must not forget our past.

And the world did nothing…

I suspect it was not that the world did nothing. The world did not believe any nation would do what NAZI Germany did. So, any info that came out hinting at the holocaust was assumed to be war propaganda and was discounted.

No, we did nothing. Look up "Appeasement".

I believe the Nazis were emboldened by Neville Chamberlain's kowtowing just two months earlier. Yes, he secured "peace for our time", but at what cost? Two months after his triumphant return, Kristallnacht; eleven months later, Germany invaded Poland, and Britain was embroiled in a war for its very survival.

And on the other hand, something else worth remembering:

Kristallnacht wasn't that big a deal at the time. Pogroms happened all over Europe from time to time and so people didn't pay it any mind. I'm afraid we're moving that way again in some parts of Europe today. God help us if we let it happen again.

The darkest of the events that this date carries for German history beside the declaration of the Republic in 1918, the first failed coup by Hitler in 1923, and the fall of the wall in 1989. I assume that if it would not also be the anniversary of the Progromnacht, it would be a national holiday. As it is, this would be inappropriate. The Progromnacht is the main event remembered durign a commemoration service including Merkel and others.

Interesting point,Puster, I hadn't considered that.
