Против фашизма

9th November
International Day Against Fascism and Anti-Semitism
After the Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, Jews were subjected to increasingly discriminatory treatment accompanied by organised violence. On November 9th 1938, the Nazis stated a pogrom against the Jews. Synagogues were set on fire. Jewish shops had their windows smashed across the country, which gave rise to the name "Kristallnact", which freely translated the Night of Broken Glass. Many Jews physically attacked too. The "Kristallnacht" pogrom is usually seen as the symbolic beginning of the Holocaust. On 9 November each year a European-wide campaign is organised to commemorate the past and to protest against contemporary forms of fascism and anti-Semitism. From: http://www.unitedagainstracism.org/
Know that racism, fascism and anti-Semitism have resulted in the deaths of millions of people. Understand that intolerance is not something that is only in our past, but is also part of our present. Be aware that racism and fascism have many faces, and not all are so easy to recognise. Remember that brave men and women have resisted against fascism.
