More than 200,000 people marched through Berlin on Thursday in memory of victims of Kristallnacht, the Nazis’ anti-Jewish pogrom in 1938. German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder led the demonstrators, who held banners that read “No to Neo-Nazis,” from prewar Berlin’s main synagogue to a rally at the Brandenburg Gate. Thousands more demonstrated in other cities across Germany.
