On Sunday, November 6, Sinai Chapels presented the Annual Kristallnacht Commemoration at Queens College.

Annette Insdorf, the keynote speaker, featured clips from various films focused on the Holocaust, including Schindler’s List, The Pawnbroker and None Shall Escape. Dr. Insdorf is the child of Holocaust survivors and an internationally recognized expert in film and Holocaust studies.

Following this keynote address, Holocaust survivors and their family members participated in a candle lighting ceremony. They were joined by students from Queens College’s Center for Ethnic, Racial and Religious Understanding.
