Warsaw to Erect Monument on Site of Ancient Jewish Cemetery

The Warsaw City Council has instructed a group of municipal architects to prepare plans for a monument to be erected on the site of the ancient Jewish cemetery in the suburb of Praga, it was reported here today from Warsaw.

The cemetery had been completely demolished and leveled out by the Nazis during the Nazi occupation of the country in the Second World War. The Jewish Social and Cultural Association, which first raised the problem of marking the site of the cemetery, is being consulted on the design for the monument.
