Kristallnacht speaker receives death threats
by Richard Orange
One of the leading figures in Norwegian campaign group Youth Against Racism was forced to pull out of an event commemorating Kristallnacht on Sunday night, after receiving a death threat over the phone.
Florence Aryanik (20), whose Muslim parents fled to Norway from Iran, was due to make a speech at a torchlit procession to commemorate the Nazi attack on German Jews.
"It was a very difficult decision to withdraw from the event tonight," Aryanik told NRK on Saturday. "Because I'm actually more frightened of being silenced than of any threat to my life. But I decided to withdraw because of my family."
