In the fall of 1938, more than 7,000 Jewish homes, businesses, and houses of worship were vandalized. Some 17,000 Polish Jews were deported, and 30,000 German Jews were sent to concentration camps. Most of this violence took place across dozens of cities on Kristallnacht, night of the broken glass. Eighty years later, talented New York-area performers will come together to pay tribute to the victims of these brutal attacks through song. Information under
