Catholics protest Kristallnacht
The Fall 2007 issue of CUA Magazine, a publication of Catholic University, tells the story of the discovery and restoration of a phonograph record that contains a radio broadcast of Nov. 16, 1938, in which CUA brought several prominent Catholics together to protest the Nazi actions against Jews on Kristallnacht, a week earlier. The speakers included Archbishop Mitty of San Francisco, Bishop Ireton of Richmond, Bishop Gannon of Erie, and former governor of NY State, Al Smith. It was carried nationally on both CBS and NBC.
