Nazis Convert Temple into Youth Clubhouse

The only synagogue in Sickenhoven, district of Hesse, was converted today into a Nazi Youth Club.

This is the first time that such a change has been effected in Germany. The Jewish Community in Sickenhoven, formerly very active, has dwindled down to only two families. The municipality therefore decided to buy the synagogue and turn it into an institution for the youth.
