A Kristallnacht memorial service with Holocaust survivor and Sherman resident Susi Leiter will be held Nov. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at Temple Sholom on Route 7 in New Milford.

Leiter, longtime Sherman resident and JCC in Sherman member, will share her memories of her childhood in Berlin.

In 1938, the Holocaust began as the Nazis smashed, looted, and burned Jewish shops and temples.

The coordinated event across Europe is known as Kristallnacht and this November marks the 80th anniversary.

The event is free and open to the public.
