Default Ontario community urged to change the name of a street named after Nazi battleship captain

Ontario community urged to change the name of a street named after Nazi battleship captain

Aug 17, 2020

B’nai Brith Canada is urging a Greater Toronto Area municipality to rename a street dedicated to a Nazi battleship captain who fought in the Second World War.

Langsdorff Drive, located in Ajax, Ontario, was named in 2007 after Hans Langsdorff, who commanded Nazi German forces at the 1939 Battle of the River Plate. The Town of Ajax is named after the HMS Ajax, a British ship that took part in the engagement.

Nazi-Named Street To Be Renamed Following B'nai Brith Advocacy

November 17, 2020

B'nai Brith Canada

AJAX, Ont. - Following B'nai Brith Canada and community advocacy, a street named after a Nazi battleship captain will be renamed.

At yesterday’s Town Council meeting in the municipality of Ajax, Ontario, Councillor Lisa Bower and Regional Councillor Sterling Lee formally moved to initiate the renaming process.

B’nai Brith has long strongly pushed for a change to the name of this street. We first publicized the issue in August and wrote to the mayor and all councillors, urging the name change.

Last week, in honour of Remembrance Day, we raised the issue again and publicly endorsed Bower and Lee's planned motion for a change in the name. We called on community members to contact the town's representatives and voice their opinions on the matter, and the community came through.

Captain Hans Langsdorff of the Graf Spee was never a member of the National Socialist party.



Quote:
Captain Hans Langsdorff at the funeral of crew members who were killed in the battle. Langsdorff pays tribute with a traditional naval salute, while some people beside and behind him - even some clergymen - are giving the Fascist salute.
