Jewish Service Club Occupies Former Residence of Hitler at Brunswick

Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery, commander of the British Armed Forces in Germany, was one of the first visitors to a Jewish Service Club in Brunswick, Germany, occupying a building which was formerly Hitler’s residence, the London newspapers report today.

The British commander presented the Jewish club with a Union Jack which is now flying beside the blue-White Jewish flag. The club is open to all men of the armed services and serves refreshments to 3,000 persons daily. Its secretary, a Jewish social worker from London, is quartered in the bedroom where Hitler slept when in Brunswick.
