(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The memory of Hugo Preuss, late Germany Jewish jurist who drafted the constitution of the German Republic, will be honored by the city of Berlin, notwithstanding the protest of German anti-Semites.

After prolonged and bitter opposition by the German Right parties, the municipality of Berlin confirmed its previous decision to name a street in Berlin after the late statesman. The decision was taken by a vote of 113 against 90.
