(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The City of Duesseldorf has decided to take over the house in which Heinrich Heine was born in 1799 and equip it in its original form. The present occupants will be provided with another house so that the house can be opened for the public. The house at 53 Bolkerstrasse, which bears a memorial tablet is not the house in which the author of “Lorelei” was born. That lies in the rear of the Bolkerstrasse house.
