The Central Council of Jews in Duesseldorf Thursday called on people to remember the victims of the “Kristallnacht” of Nov. 9. 1938. The Council said that even after 35 years, it was still necessary to recall the mass burning of synagogues and destruction of Jewish business firms that led the way to the Auschwitz gas chambers and Nazi genocide. This is especially true at a time when the excesses of Nazism find parallels in the fanatical hate of the Arab world towards Israel, the Council stated.
