PRAGUE (Reuters) - A Czech mayor, trying to end a row which upset the Jewish community, has said Adolf Hitler's honorary citizenship of his town was revoked in 1945. Last week a city hall official of Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad in German) acknowledged the honour had been granted to Hitler and said there were no plans to cancel it because it was part of the spa resort's history. The statement embarrassed Czech officials and provoked outrage among the Jewish community. Karlovy Vary was a key focus for Hitler and the Sudeten German movement, and a flashpoint of tension in the build-up to World War Two. But Mayor Josef Pavel was quoted by a newspaper on Wednesday as saying a 1945 law, which cancelled legal acts carried out during the wartime Nazi occupation, meant that Hitler's honorary citizenship had been annulled. Many people in the city's majority German population welcomed Hitler's forces when they occupied the so-called Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia following the Munich Agreement with western European powers in 1938. Most remnants from the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia -- such as street names and public monuments -- were changed or removed by the subsequent Communist government.
