Berlin's Jewish Community "Not Interested" in Goebbels Villa





Authorities in the capital had approached the Jewish community to see if it wanted to host exhibitions at the woodland property on the outskirts of the city.

Its members inspected the site at Bogensee during the summer. After that, there had been no further contact with city officials, said Maya Zehden, a spokeswoman for the Jewish community.

"For this reason the Jewish community is no longer interested in the idea, whatever form it might take," she said.

The city of Berlin, which owns the villa and the 460,000-square-meter estate it is located on, has been trying to sell the property.

But the villa was taken off the market in July, following fears that neo-Nazis might try to buy it.
