The tenth anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Walter Rathenau, the German Jew who was Foreign Minister, and was murdered in 1922 by antisemites, will be observed by the German Government to-morrow (Friday), at a special memorial meeting in the Reichstag.

The Prime Minister, Herr von Papen, who is absent at Lausanne, will be officially represented and several members of the Government will be present.

The usual memorial procession to Rathenau’s grave, organised each year by the Reichsbanner, will also take place to-morrow.
