Jews Arrested in Rome During Clash with Fascists Are Released

Three young Jews who were arrested along with several neo-fascists following a clash over the weekend between the two groups, were released last night. Jewish leaders here had resented the fact that the police arrested the young Jews along with their fascist attackers.

In Bologna, meanwhile, a memorial to victims of Nazi concentration camps was unveiled today. During the ceremony, an urn containing ashes and earth collected from crematory ovens at the site of the Gusen concentration camp, was placed in the memorial. Most of the Jews deported from Bologna, were killed at Gusen. Among those participating in the ceremony were Eugene Heymann, president of the Bologna Jewish community and leading officials of the town.
