Luxembourg City to erect monument to Holocaust victims

A statue is to be erected in Luxembourg City to the memory of the country’s Jews who were killed in the Holocaust.

Polish artist, Selomo Seliger, 86, has been charged with creating the monument.

Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel told RTL: “The Shoah also existed in Luxembourg. A large part of the Jewish community in Luxembourg was murdered, in certain cases with the complicity of Luxembourg.”

The monument is to be erected near the city’s cathedral, behind the State Ministry building, the same site as the former synagogue which was destroyed by the Nazis in 1943.
