BONN (Dec. 15)
A twenty-page pamphlet tracing the course of the November, 1938 pogroms has been published as a supplement to “Das Parlament,” a government-sponsored weekly newspaper here. Author Hermann Graml has for the first time given a documented account of the behind-the-scenes maneuvering in the Nazi leadership that led to the burning of hundreds of synagogues and the wrecking of thousands of stores and apartments.
A circular letter calling on all trade unionists not to forget the lesson of the pogroms has been published by the West Berlin Association of Trade Unions.
A memorial for “those who were slain” was dedicated in the city of Kassel “to commemorate the political, racial and religious victims of Nazism as well as the young people who had to give their life during the war.”
