Our annual program to remember Kristallnacht will be held at our shul, NTEHEM, 7311 N Western, Chicago, on Tuesday November 10 at 7:30p.

The program, is a play, "Chiune Sugihara: Unsung hero of the Holocaust” produced by Genesis Theatricals. The production features Dwight Sora as Chiune Sugihara, in a 45 minute performance, based on the work by Phillip Pinkus.

Sugihara, serving as a diplomat in Kovno, along with his wife gave visas that saved 6,000 from the Nazis.  His reward from his own government was forced resignation from the civil service as he had defied orders. 40,000 are alive today because of Sugihara.
