A Cologne Tram Surprise
Posted by daveklepper on Saturday, October 24, 2020 5:33 PM

Cologne, Germany’s transit system attached Star of David stickers and the Hebrew “shalom” on a tram on one of its busiest routes on Wednesday, for advance celebration for next year's anniversary of 1,700 years of Jewish life in Germany, which was recorded in year 321.  The initiative came from Association 321, as "a sign against anti-Semitism and against racism,”  (Twitter)

Rewritten from material from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency

Isn't that something?  Looks like they went beyond just putting stickers on the train!
