|Oxford Mail and Oxford Times 1931|
In June 1931 several plaques were unveiled by the Oxford City Council to commemorate various events connected with the medieval Jewish presence in Oxford.
These plaques were:
That on the Botanical Gardens Gate to mark the medieval Jewish Cemetery
That on the Scheduled Ancient Monument of Osney Mill to mark the martyrdom of the Haggai of Oxford
That on the Town Hall to mark the ancient Jewish synagogue
These were well reported in the Oxford Times and Oxford Mail: these reports are shown here (with thanks to the editors of the Oxford Mail and Times):
