BERLIN, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 09:  Candles placed at Stolpersteine by local people commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Kristallnacht pogroms cast light on the names of Jewish residents murdered in the Holocaust on November 9, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. Stolpersteine are concrete cobblestones afixed with brass plaques that memorialize local Jewish residents who were murdered or expelled by the Nazis. Events are taking place across Germany today and tomorrow to commemorate the day in 1938 when Nazi gangs across Germany and Austria burned down over 1,000 synagogues, smashed Jewish-owned businesses, looted Jewish residences and killed several hundred Jews. Anti-Semitism was a central component of Adolf Hitler's rise to power and won him wide-spread sympathy among ordinary Germans and Austrians.  (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
