Ένα βίντεο για την αναστήλωση της Συναγωγής των Χανίων / Etz Hayyim Chania Synagogue 2010: Arson and Reconstruction Project

When I heard about the fire, I was shocked because I immediately remembered the “Kristallnacht” in Germany. That was in 38, I was a child but I remember it and I remember the burning of books.

Angelika, member of the Fraternity of Etz Hayyim Synagogue
“At approximately 12:20-1:00 AM on the night of the 5th January, a serious attack was made on the fabric of the Synagogue. One or two or even more individuals made their way into the south garden of the synagogue by climbing over the iron gate. Subsequent to this they set about making an improvised incendiary device by tearing open a large Ottoman cushion in the mikveh and then with the contents stuffed a canister that was filled with some flammable liquid which was then set afire under the wooden stair of the ezrat nashim.” (from the blog of the Etz Hayyim Synagogue)
