A light of defiance: Holocaust survivor’s grandson lights hanukkia used in pre-war Germany

A hanukkia lit by a German rabbi in defiance of mounting antisemitism and repression in 1930s Nazi Germany was lit on Tuesday night at Yad Vashem by his grandson at a conference on preserving Jewish identity.

The hanukkia belonged to Rabbi Akiva Posner, who served as the last rabbi of the Jewish community in Kiel, Germany, from 1924 to 1933.
