(NEWS) Kristallnacht Memorial Stolen

"Thieves made off with a 750 kilogram Kristallnacht monument from the Jewish cemetery in Cologne.

The theft occurred Sunday night, Ha'aretz reported on Friday, and the local Jewish community is offering a 4,000 Euro reward for information leading to its retrieval.

The monument, representing religious objects rescued during the night of Nazi-spurred violence and looting in 1938, stood about nine feet high.

The theft took place days after commemorations of Kristallnacht, or the night of broken glass -- named for the Jewish shops that were destroyed during the attacks." (source)
