Source Description

This February 1921 call for donations for the establishment of a memorial cemetery for Jews who had died in the First World War, which was to be located at the Jewish Ilandkoppel cemetery (Ohlsdorf), met with broad support from community institutions and the three religious associations. Among the signatories were individual members of the board, the Representative Council  [Repräsentanten-Kollegium], the Funeral Commission, the German-Jewish War Veterans’ Association  [Vaterländischer Bund jüdischer Frontsoldaten e. V.], the First Officers of the student fraternities K. C. Saxonia and V. J. St. Kadima, as well as Chief Rabbi Spitzer of the Synagogue Association, rabbis Leimdörfer and Sonderling of the Temple Association, and members of the Synagogue Association's council of delegates, board members of the Temple Association and the Synagogue at Neues Dammtor. The appeal was also supported by Emilie Bing, Sonja Franck, and Minna Magnus – all three of them religious liberals.
