Dr. James Newman, U.S. director for the province of Hesse, and several other American, Jewish and German personalities today attended a ceremony re-dedicating the Wiesbaden synagogue.

The synagogue was partly destroyed during the pogroms which swept Germany in Nov. 9-10 1938, and then was converted into a collection center for Jewish prisoners bound for concentration camps.
