Marking the Night of Broken Glass throughout Nazi Germany in November of 1938 that signified the beginning of the Holocaust, this candlelight observance takes place at 5 p.m. in the chapel. Music for the event will include selections by the World Music Choir and the reading of an excerpt by Emeritus Professor of German, Dr. Robert Conard from the writings of 1972 Nobel Laureate in Literature, German Heinrich Böll, in which he reflects on the theme of understanding and tolerance, which relates directly to the issues in American society today and to this year’s Humanities Commons theme, "Hospitality - Welcoming the Other."
