Apparently bowing to Soviet pressure, East Germany on Wednesday abruptly canceled its invitation to the mayor of West Berlin to attend a ceremony marking Berlin's 750th anniversary. Wolfgang Meyer, a spokesman for the East German Foreign Ministry, said Mayor Eberhard Diepgen would not be welcome at a state ceremony in East Berlin on Oct. 23 because of his "slanderous attacks" on East Germany last week at a West Berlin anniversary ceremony.

Regarding the uproar in Berlin over the creation of the Holocaust monument, your article ("Berlin Memorial Mired in Politics," Aug. 28) quotes Berlin Mayor Eberhard Diepgen as complaining that the monument will make Berlin "a city of memorials and repentance." I see nothing wrong with memorials and repentance. The mayor's attitude shows how clearly both are still needed. DAVID KING Victorville As a former Jewish resident of Berlin (I left in 1939), I am dismayed to read that Der Spiegel feels such a monument is "too much remembering," and Berlin's mayor said it is "too monumental."

The 49th anniversary of Nazi Germany's "Crystal Night" pogrom against Jews was observed in a memorial service on Sunday, with speakers lamenting the lack of resistance to the official anti-Semitism of the Hitler era. "There were only some reserved objections to the Jewish pogrom of Nov. 9-10, 1938. The planners of state terror against Jews could feel encouraged as a result," West Berlin Mayor Eberhard Diepgen said in a speech.
