From the cemetery, the guests and dignitaries gathered in the square before the former synagogue. The square’s name was officially renamed for Rabbi Akiva Eiger. Samuel and Joshua Halpern, descendants of Rabbi Eiger, unveiled the plaque in his honor. “This is an unusual day for the history of our family and the whole Jewish community,” Samuel Halpern said. “There had been no place [like this] until now where one could come and pray in his memory. Such a place is in Poznan now.”
