Eika som ble plantet i Jasło i Polen for å feire Hitlers 53. fødselsdag, skal bli saget ned og kuttet opp for å bygge en synagoge i Toronto i Canada. Dette sier ordføreren i byen, Maria Kurowska. Hun legger til at treet ødelegger konstruksjonsplanene for trafikksystemet hvor treet står.
Polskieradio: The oak tree planted by Nazis in Jasło, south east Poland, to celebrate Hitler’s 53rd birthday may go to Toronto, Canada, where its wood would be used to build a synagogue.
The synagogue is planned to be modelled on the one in Jasło that was destroyed by the Nazis during World War 2.
The tree has fallen foul of local mayor Maria Kurowska who wants it cut down, ostensibly because it is obstructing the construction of a new traffic island, as well as because of its infamous history.
Mayor Kurowska said she was happy to hear of the offer to have the tree removed to Canada. Meanwhile city authorities have not yet decided whether the oak needs to be felled.
