Queensland Kristallnacht Commemoration 2022

16 Nov 2022

APR2P's Atrocity Prevention Coordinator Nikki Marczak delivered the keynote address at the Queensland Kristallnacht Commemoration on the 9th of November 2022, at the Brisbane Hebrew Congregation in Brisbane.

Her speech, “Early warning: genocide prevention through the eyes of my grandparents”, looked at the UN Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Prevention from a personal perspective, sharing the story of her mother’s parents who were deported from Leipzig in October 1938, about a week before the violence of Kristallnacht was unleashed.

The event was hosted by the Queensland Jewish Board of Deputies and is an annual commemoration.
