BERLIN MAYOR QUESTIONS NEED FOR MEMORIAL

The mayor of Berlin on Saturday urged the German government to consider whether it was necessary to erect a new memorial in the capital city to honor the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis.

Eberhard Diepgen, in an article for the Berlin daily Tagesspiegel, said that since the end of World War II, the city had built more than 45 memorials to victims of Nazi terror.

"That's why one has to ask whether Berlin needs more and more memorials to do justice to the memory of the Holocaust victims," he said.

Diepgen said he expected a new memorial to be agreed upon once "a convincing concept has been found."
