The Bonn municipality ruled last week that there is no legal way to strip Adolf Hitler of his title of honorary citizen of Bonn, accorded by the city fathers, when he came to power in 1933. The matter came up after journalists noted that President Chaim Herzog of Israel, who was the guest of the West German government on his visit her two weeks ago, was honored by the same town that honored Hitler. It is not known whether Herzog was aware of the fact. Bonn is a twin city of Tel Aviv and sends youth and other groups on exchange visits to Israel.
