Pan of ceremony, attendees singing Israeli national anthem STORYLINE Germans and Israelis on Sunday marked the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Nazi-incited riots that began their campaign to destroy European Jewry, with ceremonies, concerts and vows to honour the victims with renewed vigilance. Chancellor Angela Merkel recalled the November 9, 1938 riots in which more than 91 German Jews were killed and more than 1,000 synagogues damaged, telling Germans that the lessons of the nation's past were crucial in confronting a current increase of xenophobia and racism. The Kristallnacht riots are seen by many as the first step leading to the Nazis' murder of six (m) million Jews in the Holocaust. "We must not be silent," Merkel told the nation at a ceremony in Germany's newly renovated largest synagogue. "Xenophobia, racism and anti-Semitism mustn't be given a chance in Europe and outside Europe's borders." Some 30-thousand Jewish men and boys were arrested and sent to concentration camps during the mass riots that left the streets littered with shards of glass - giving it the pogrom its name. Charlotte Knobloch, head of Germany's Central Council of Jews, who survived Kristallnacht as a girl in Munich, Germany, told the gathering in Berlin's Rykestrasse Synagogue that Germans must fight against far-right extremism in all its forms. The synagogue, a red brick temple built in 1904, also survived Kristallnacht because of its location nestled in an inner courtyard of a densely populated neighbourhood. It reopened last year after two years of painstaking renovation. A memorial concert in Berlin later on Sunday and events in other communities across the country were also being held to mark the anniversary. Germany's southern neighbour Austria - where Kristallnacht claimed 30 Jewish lives - also commemorated the day, while German-born Pope Benedict XVI said he still feels the pain of Kristallnacht as he addressed the crowd gathered at Saint Peter's square in Vatican City. The Catholic leader invited prayers for Kristallnacht victims and asked others to join him in a show of deep solidarity with Jews around the world. When a young man in Germany, Benedict, then called Joseph Ratzinger, served briefly in the Hitler Youth corps. At Yad Vashem, Israel's official Holocaust memorial, survivors, their descendants, academics and the German and Austrian ambassadors to Israel took part in a ceremony that also included a rare musical rendition of a work of the German-Jewish composer Robert Kahn, whose music was outlawed by the Nazis. Yad Vashem also presented a new online exhibit, "It Came From Within ... 70 Years Since Kristallnacht," marking the event with images, historical information, and pages of testimony about some of the Jews who died during Kristallnacht. Kristallnacht survivor Mordechai Segal, who participated in the remembrance service, described his experience of the night. At Israel's weekly Cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Kristallnacht was "the turning point toward the inevitable destruction of a greater portion of the Jewish people in Europe between 1939-1945," adding that Israel "will never forgive or forget" the crimes of the Nazi regime.
