Virtual Synagogue Exhibit

Here's a link to my latest CBC opinion piece, which links this exhibit to teaching children about the Holocaust, and to the current refugee influx from the US into Canada:

Virtual synagogue exhibit shows pre-Holocaust German Jews embraced strangers: 'You should love the stranger,' synagogues said, 'for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.'

This exhibit should be coming to Toronto and Vancouver, too.  In the meanwhile, here are some links to images from the exhibit.

The first two images are virtual reconstructions of what some of the congregations looked like before Kristallnacht.

There were over 1,000 synagogues and over 7,000 businesses destroyed that night.  Here's one last image of the destruction from the exhibit.  Follow this link to read more.
