"The beginning of the destruction of Jewish life during the Nazi era started with the November pogroms of 1938. Today, I commemorated these harrowing events which paved the way for the Holocaust at Vienna's Judenplatz. What happened then is a disgrace that must never be forgotten.”, said Federal President Fischer via his official Facebook page.
