Jews in Minneapolis Dedicate Monument for Martyrs Killed by Nazis

An “Altar for Freedom” monument, dedicated to the memory of “our beloved who died among the 6,000,000 of our Jewish brethren under Nazi barbarism” was unveiled at a service at the United Hebrew Brotherhood Cemetery here. The project was initiated by 100 survivors of the Nazi holocaust who are now living in the Minneapolis community.

A year ago, through the efforts of the group, with the aid of Minneapolis Jewry, a living memorial library fund was established at the Minneapolis Public Library, which announced this week that the first 50 books purchased through the $3,500 memorial fund had been placed on its shelves. The books depict the history of the Jewish people, including the Nazi period.
