9 November — International Day against Fascism and Anti-Semitism

November 9 as International Day against Fascism and Anti-Semitism is linked with the year 1938 and the so-called Night of Broken Glass.

Destroying homes of Jewish people, smashing windows in their houses and stores, leaving lots of glass in the streets all this explains the name given to the night of the events.

Being first of all a symbolic date, November 9 is marked annually with global campaigns to express contemporary protest and discontent with modern conspicuity of fascism, racism and anti-Semitism.

The European network against racism, which includes over 550 communities from different countries, is one of the organizations widely contributing into commemoration of the important date.
