Leipzig Will Rename Streets Honoring Jews

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The mayor of this city which, until the coming of the Nazi regime, had a large Jewish population, today ordered the renaming of all streets named after Jewish personalities.

Leipzig has declined considerably as a commercial city since the Jews of the world began their boycott against German goods and particularly against participating in the international fairs held in Leipzig twice a year.
