“Shattered Night/Zersplitterte Nacht” – Tyrolean Commemorative Culture on a European Level!
For the 79th time we commemorate the horrors of the November Pogroms of 1938! In “Zersplitterte Nacht – Shattered Night” contemporary witnesses, those who remember to this day, tell their stories of that fateful era of inexpressibly atrocious and murderous times. As the AVG Filmteam we can only bow to them and express our deepest thanks also to our sponsors: Austrian Cultural Forum Brussels, Austrian National Bank Brussels, Tyrol – Sout Tyrol – Trentino Euroregion and the Province of Tyrol! Because they are the ones that make it possible to reach European scales in Brussels with our touching and didactically valuable work. Heartfelt gratitude also goes to Richard and Andrew Benson from London, the grandchildren of Ing. Richard Berger who was murdered in the Pogromnacht of Innsbruck in 1938. They as well as many honored guests have joined us in Brussels. We also thank all the cinemagoers and everyone who is interested in our work.
