A concert to mark the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the 1938 German pogrom, was held in London on Tuesday.
Endorsed by the leaders of all three main political parties, the event was organised by the Holocaust Centre, home to the Aegis Trust for genocide prevention, in memory of Kristallnacht, "the night of broken glass".
On November 9, 1938, more than 90 Jews were murdered and 25,000-30,000 were deported to labour camps. Kristallnacht is now recognised as the precursor to the destruction of the Jews of Europe.
