    museum. For a number of reasons (location, being predominantly a Roman Catholic city etc.) Cologne has always been relatively more philo-semitic, including during 1933-45, than other german cities. Germany is one of only 4or5 countries in the Diaspora where the jewish popn. is actually rising. Obviously, the jewish popn of Germany will never reach the 566,000 who were resident in the country in the 1920's & early 30's but there is a commitment to increase the numbers & infrastructure of a modern Jewish presence in Germany. This is not a good sign especially taking into account that cities across Europe (including whole regions like the Costa Brava in NE Spain) are falling over themselves to erect Jewish museums & heritage trails. Cologne residents should be proud of the fact that Jewish people have lived in the city for over a thousand years, a fact that dosen't exist in other countries like the UK which was judenrein (jew free) for hundreds of years in the middle ages.
