JNS.org – A new Israeli consulate opened in Munich, Germany, in close proximity to Adolf Hitler’s former office and the former headquarters of the National Socialist (Nazi) Party.

Israelis will now be able to apply for visas and renew their passports at the new consulate building, which was rented out to the state of Israel.

Bavarian State Minister Horst Seehofer, Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, and President of the Israeli Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria Charlotte Knobloch attended the opening ceremony of the new consulate.

“There is no place for xenophobia or antisemitism in this country,” Seehofer said at the ceremony, the German TV news channel Bayerischer Rundfunk reported.
