Holocaust survivors' home built by firm with past

August 2, 2006 03:37

The company that built Hitler's Berlin bunker is now building a retirement home serving mainly Holocaust survivors. A former leader of Prague's once-thriving Jewish community said Tuesday that the choice of the firm was unfortunate. But Frantisek Banyai, the current head of the local Jewish community, said he wasn't worried by the company's past - even though it built the bunker where Adolf Hitler killed himself on April 30, 1945, as well his Bavarian Alpine retreat, Berghof. "We did not examine these things," Banyai said Monday. "We opened a tender and they gave us the best price."
