the holocaust with 6 million jews murdered. november the ninth is also the anniversary of other two crucial days -- another two crucial days in german history. >> 80 years on, the horrors of the past still does sound. chancellor merkel attending a service at berlin's largest same -- synagogue. >> jewish life is flourishing in germany once again. that is an unexpected gift after the break with civilization that was the holocaust. at the same time, i see a worrying anti-semitism that is threatening jewish life in our country and other places in the world where jewish people thought themselves safe. this anti-semitism is expressed openly in unbuckled his speech on the internet and in the
public sphere.e. -- unbridled hate speech on the internet and in the public sphere. >> this is a reminder of events 80 years ago. on the night of the ninth of november, 1938, nazis released violence on jews. 100 jews were killed, 26,000 were taken to concentration camps. november the ninth is also the anniversary of two other fateful dadays in german history. 100 years ago in the closing days of world war i, the social democrat politicians proclaimed a new german republic from the window. in 1989, democracy protests led to the fall of the berlin wall.
it ultimately led to the reunification of germany. three days that loomed large in germany's collective memory. it is our actions today that show whether we have truly understood and learned from the consequences said the german president. >> we must prove that we germans have truly learned from the past and truly become more vigilant because in our history. we need to take action anytime that dignity is violated. we need to take a stand when a language of hatred spreads its tentacles. we can't allow a situation where some people claim to be the sole base -- voice of the true people and marginalize others. >> with them in parliament for the first time and extremist voices on the rise across the country, these were poignant words.

they are connected in many ways. one should not overshadow the other. our club is generally interested in bringing a way of civic education. the republic will such of the german population. this is a forgotten republic and the germans think of it only from the very bad ending. we think it has to be made clear that the beginning of the constitution of the first democratic state in germany was an achievement that was important for germany. that is the general aim of our club. phil: why hasn't been lost or
forgotten? >> many reasons. first of all, it is only looked at because of its bad ending. many people said it was deemed too and that way. we think that is not true. it was not ended by itself, it was destroyed by forces of undemocratic german people. there are many other reasons for that as well. >> do you see parallels between 1918 and today? >> if you are correct to the ninth of november and our action , our revolution is rolling. i think this is a special event and a special thing where we want to attract attention. it really creates lessons for
germans today. i think another revolution in this situation is not necessary and not wanted. it is the weight -- later history of the republic. it is interesting for us because it shows us that you have two always defend democracy. otherwise, it will be destroyed by the enemies of it. phil: what has been the reaction in germany? >> the actions? phil: your work to try to get people to remember this? >> there is a very broad discussion in germany academically and in newspapers. also, in many media.
