Accomplished design writer Steven Heller today on the firm's "1938Projekt: Posts from the Past," from the article A Horrible But Timely Anniversary:
"Today and tomorrow is a sad anniversary. Coming on the heels of the shooting and murder of eleven congregants at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, it is the 80th anniversary of the terrifying events of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) throughout Nazi Germany on November 9 and 10, 1938.
