Kirstallnacht was quietly commemorated in Amsterdam on Wednesday night. Despite disagreements between various organizations who wanted to organize the memorial, there were no incidents, NOS reports.

During the night of November 9th to 10th, 1983 Nazis in Germany burned down 1,400 synagogues and 7,500 Jewish stores. Hundreds of Jews were murdered. Kristallnacht was the first major assault against Jews in Germany since the Nazis took power in 1933. It marks the change from discrimination against Jews to systematic persecution that eventually ended in the Holocaust.
