Neo-Nazi demonstrations banned from synagogue opening

A German court has upheld a ban on all neo-Nazi demonstrations that have been scheduled in Munich for November 9th – opening day of the city’s newly rebuilt synagogue. Finishing touches are being applied to city’s newest house of worship which is being built on the Jakobsplatz where the city’s main synagogue once stood, prior to being destroyed by the Nazis in 1938.
