A monument to Jewish athletes who were murdered in the Nazi holocaust will be erected in the Maccabiah village in Israel in 1968, Brit Hakoah, the association of former members of Hakoah, said here today. Hakoah was a Jewish sports club football team in Vienna. The monument, which will list the names of the martyred sportsmen, will be dedicated next year as part of the celebrations of Israel’s 20th anniversary. Norbert Katz, a former member of the Hakoah football team, and organizer of Brit Hakoah in Britain, said the monument was designed by Karl Dultig, a former Hakoah goal keeper, who is now a sculptor in Australia.
