Download PDF for this date

The memory of Walter Rathenau, the late German Jewish statesman who died at the hands of anti-Semites, will be honored by his own city, according to a decision of the Berlin City Government.

The municipal government decided to rename a fountain monument in the people’s park, Rehberg, the Rathenau Fountain. It is to be decorated with an artistic relief, representing Rathenau, father and son.
