Mirjam Ohringer has been active since she was 14 years old in the resistance movement against the nazi occupator in Amsterdam and has been active against xenofobia and racisme eversince.
On 9 November, named the International Day Against Fascism and Anti-Semitism, we commemorate the "Kristallnacht" pogrom of 1938. On November 6th, Herschel Grynszpan, a Jew who was angry with the increasingly repressive measures being adopted in Germany against Jews, took revenge by shooting the diplomat Ernst vom Rath at the German embassy in Paris. The diplomat died two days later and news of his death reached Germany on Novermber 9th. This started a massive nation-wide pogrom, secretly organised by a section of the Nazi party, which left many Jews dead in the streets, and hundreds of Jewish businesses and synagogues destroyed. It marked the beginning of the Holocaust, the systematic murder of 6 million Jews, over a million Roma and Sinti, gay people as well as communists, trade unionists and many others.
De spreekster is Mirjam Ohringer. Ze werd geboren in Amsterdam in 1924. Een deel van haar Joodse familieleden in Duitsland werd vlak voor de Kristallnacht in 1938 gedeporteerd naar Polen. Na het uitbreken van de oorlog gaat ze in het verzet. Haar geliefde wordt naar het concentratiekamp Mauthausen gedeporteerd. Ze weet de oorlog te overleven door onder te duiken. Ohringer zet zich tot op de dag van vandaag in om de herinnering aan de slachtoffers van het fascisme levend te houden. Ze sprak in 1996 en 2008 ook op de Kristallnachtherdenking in Amsterdam.
