As we approach 80 years since 'Kristallnacht', or the 'Reichspogromnacht', I thought I'd access the @YadVashem records for 1938 to put a face to some of those who died as a result of the pogrom.
This is just a small selection of those who died on, or around Kristallnacht.
Hundreds more would kill themselves.
Many more would perish in concentration camps in Germany in the months immediately following Kristallnacht - beaten, shot, or succumbing to disease.
It's worth remembering that the span of time from the Nazis coming to power, to 'Kristalknacht' was only five short years.
Five short years of people thinking that it couldn't get that bad, that the worst was maybe behind them.
Five years for people to learn to look away.
On the 80th anniversary, please consider giving to @holocaustuk (UK), @ushmm (US) or @JHCMelbourne (Oz) to help them reach future generations about the horrors that came with fascism.
If anybody else is aware of other Holocaust charities in the countries, please let me know.
