BERLIN (Jan. 30)
The day of Hitler’s coming to power in Germany 30 years ago–on January 30, 1933–was marked today throughout Germany with anti-Nazi meetings and with an impressive memorial gathering arranged by the Jewish community of West Berlin in memory of the Jews annihilated by the Nazis.
Addressing a rally arranged by the Social Democratic party, West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt warned Germans to be careful that “the past should not be a future. ” Similar warnings were voiced by speakers at a mass meeting here arranged by the International Union of Former Resistance Fighters and Former Deportees. In Frankfurt, a public demonstration was held at the university there, arranged by members of various anti-Nazi movements.
