A park featuring a statue of Theodor Fritsch, late prophet of Jew-hatred, about to crush the Jew, who is represented as a reptile, has been opened in the Zellendorf section of Berlin, according to the New York World-Telegram.

The stone monument stands in a large square known as Theodor Fritsch Platz and its pedestal is engraved with quotations from Fritsch’s writings. The major inscription reads, “There can be no health for the people until the Jews have been extirpated.”
