Petitioning Mayor of Koblenz Prof. Dr. Hofman-Gotting

Stop the destruction of a 160 year old German synagogue!

Mayor Joachim Hofman-Gotting,

Since the German Government murdered six million Jews, I find it morally abhorrent that a modern unit of that government (the unit you run!) is complicit in the conversion of a Jewish holy space into a building for commercial activity.  Although you apparently find solace in the contention that, "Things were rectified after WWII," the same logic would imply that were a Jew to murder you and demolish your house, your heirs should be satisfied if your murderer offered to pay them the value of your house in 1945!  Obviously, such an idea is ludicrous on its face.  So, too, is the decision you reached.  I strongly urge you to find alternate buildings for the entrepreneurial endeavors of the richest man in Koblenz, Peter Goerlitz!

Letter to
Mayor of Koblenz Prof. Dr. Hofman-Gotting
