Frankfurt Municipality Contributes $5,000 for School in Haifa

Download PDF for this date

The Frankfurt Municipal Council made a donation today of 20,000 marks ($5,000) toward the cost of erection of a new building for the Leo Baeck School in Haifa. Dr. Baeck, a leader of Liberal Judaism in Germany, was interned during the last two years of World War II in Nazi concentration camps. He died later in London.

The “July 20, 1944” organization, which was organized to care for the children of the Germans executed by the Gestapo for their role in the unsuccessful plot on that date against Hitler, indicated today it planned to send 30 orphans on a tour to Israel next spring.
