Hatred Kills!

Send in your activities and order free campaign material - see forms

Hatred Kills! Protect your environment from right-wing extremism!

Hatred is a dangerous disease, which destroys societies. It spreads like
cancer and it has to be confronted at an early stage. Otherwise it can
be too late for cure... HATRED IS TOXIC, there is nothing 'natural'
about it... And it kills. 
For any questions about risks and side effects please read the
poster-leaflet or contact UNITED - in any way GET ACTIVE!

Around 9 November anti-fascist and anti-racist organisations throughout
Europe commemorate the victims of the 'Kristallnacht' pogrom and
Hitler's fatal policy of mass murder. They protest against contemporary
forms of racism and intolerance.

9th November 1938 was the day of the so-called 'Kristallnacht' pogrom.
Today it is seen as the symbolic beginning of the Holocaust. Hundreds of
Jewish temples, shops and homes were attacked and burnt. Numerous Jews
were beaten by nazi strong-arm squads. At least 91 people were killed
and many more were injured. 267 synagogues were burnt or destroyed. Many
of them were soon demolished completely. The nazi propaganda called the
event the Night of Broken Glass (Kristallnacht) referring to the broken
glass from the shop windows. 

In the wake of pogrom many Jews were arrested and transported to nazi
concentration camps. About 30,000 people were transported to Buchenwald,
Dachau and Sachsenhausen. Many of them died, some were released after
they decided to emigrate from Germany losing all their property, which
was taken over by 'Aryans'.
