Download PDF for this date

Tablets commemorating the destruction of synagogues here by the Nazi regime will be erected this month, the 20th anniversary of “crystal night” when Nazi gangs throughout Germany smashed, burned and destroyed synagogues, communal buildings and Jewish homes, Mayor Thomas Wimmer announced today. Among the tablets will be one on Herzog-Max Strasse, where the Main Synagogue had stood until destroyed on orders of the Hitler regime in June, 1938; and another on Herzog-Rudolf Strasse, where the Orthodox Ohel Jacob Synagogue had stood.
