Frankfurt Jews plan
Bonn (JTA) — The cornerstone
of a 15 million Mark new Jewish
community was laid in Frankfurt
this month in the presence of local
civic and Jewish community lead-
ers. The city of Frankfurt is pro-
viding 7.5 million Marks toward
its construction. Mayor Walter

ceremonies, hailed the contribu-

to Frankfurt. 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.
