The cornerstone of a 15 million Mark new Jewish community center was laid in Frankfurt last week in the presence of local civic and Jewish community leaders. The city of Frankfurt is providing 7.5 million Marks toward its construction. Mayor Walter Wallmann, who spoke at the ceremonies, hailed the contributions of many generations of Jews to Frankurt. The cornerstone of the structure is inscribed with the names of the 10,231 Frankfurt Jews deported to Nazi death camps and the more than 7,000 others who committed suicide to avoid that fate.
