    Albert-Reiner Glaap’s curiosity about Jewish culture was inspired by an incident in his childhood: "It was November 9th, 1938. Early in the morning my mother sent me to the neighbouring grocery shop to buy a pound of butter and a few other things. When in the shop, I heard the sound of windows being smashed, which made me dodge behind the counter. I was shocked. It was the “Night of Broken Glass.” This moment instilled into me the urge to learn what Jewish culture is all about." Learn More
