(Times of Israel) A Spanish village is considering removing the phrase "kill Jews" from its name.
The village of Castrillo Matajudios near Leon in northern Spain will convene its 60 resident families at a town hall meeting next week to discuss and vote on the first formal proposal to change the village’s name, the regional daily Diario de Burgos reported Friday.
Mayor Lorenzo Rodriguez, who submitted the proposal, suggested changing the village’s name to Castrillo Mota de Judios, which means "Castrillo Jews’ Hill." He said this was the village’s original name, but it was changed during the Spanish Inquisition.
