Photojournalist/Editor: Will Caldwell. Reporter: Rick Holmes. UNION - This weekend marks the 75th anniversary of one of the darkest chapters in human history, referred to as the "Night of Broken Glass." For many Jews, it symbolizes the beginning of the Holocaust. Edward Mosberg, 87, was a 13-year-old boy living in Krakow, Poland when the Nazis were taking over Europe. Just 500 miles to the west, the Nazis destroyed a thousand synagogue, and 7,000 Jewish-owned businesses, foreshadowing the pending destruction of an entire race of people. "Everyone said it was temporary," Mosberg says. "Everyone was worried about their business. They never told them there would be any killings." Years later it became known as the Kristallnacht, "The Night of Broken Glass." For Edward and his family, it marked the beginning of the end. In the years to follow, he lost his mother, father, and two sisters in concentration camps. The Nazis murdered 16 members of his family by the end of the war. Mosberg was the only one to survive the camp. His wife of 66 years also lost her family. The couple's family members are among the 4.2 million Jews now memorialized in the new Book of Names at the Auschwitz Museum. "I could hear the voices of my family. 'don't forget us,'" Mosberg says. "I don't forget. And I don't forgive." The Yad Vashem Book of Names opened earlier this year. It is considered a promise to those people that they will never be forgotten, and that history won't be repeated.+ More details
