It is no coincidence that the European Jewish Association, an organization representing Jewish communities across Europe, chose November 8 and 9 as the day of its anti-Semitism symposium. On the night of November 9-10, 1938, the Germans carried out a pogrom against Jews, behind which stood the state apparatus. At the invitation of EJA, 130 political figures and Jewish leaders from all over Europe and abroad came to Krakow for a symposium on the importance of education in combating anti-Semitism. A day later, a visit to the former Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camps took place. The partner of the event on the Polish side is the Social and Cultural Association of Jews in Poland.
