The Prussian Government replaced to-day in front of the Palace on Peacock Island, the statue which it has had restored of Rachel, the famous Jewish-French actress, which was removed after being damaged by antisemitic rowdies about seven years ago. The Rachel statue is the only monument to an actress in Central Europe.
It was put up by King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. of Prussia, in commemoration of a remarkable performance given at the Palace by Rachel during a visit paid there by Czar Nicholas I. of Russia. The Prussian Prince George is said to have proposed marriage to her at the time, but she declined the offer.
