Click below to hear about the first time that I learned that my dad was in Dachau and the first time I even heard the word Kristallnacht (sometime in the later 1960's, probably 1967. This is the second video that I made while isolating during the pandemic. I am not sure what will become of these, but the first step is to make them.

This is the service where CBST remembers not only the tragic events of Kristallnacht, but also the culture and lives of the German (and Austrian) people from before the Holocaust. This year Rick channeled his father's lessons and shared them with the congregation.

Ruth Gruber's book called Haven

In November 2016, Rick Landman spoke at the annual Kristallnacht Service at CBST for 5 minutes about the Jewish Refugee Internment Camp at Oswego New York, which was created towards the end of World War II for about 900 displaced European Jews, who were interned in NY under the threat of being returned back to Germany after the war's conclusion.

Ruth Gruber's book called "Haven" is an excellent account of the lives and struggles of the story of how America did take in refugees in 1944 outside of the Quota system, and how America reacted to having these mostly Jews in our midst. It is a must read to understand refugees, displaced persons, and why America didn't take in more survivors of the Holocaust. Below is the video clip of Rick's talk at CBST.
