Görlitz´s annual anonymous donation is ending!

It started in 1995, that an anonymous donor donated 1 Million German Marks a year to the city of Görlitz. That later translated into 511.500 Euro when the currency conversion occurred.

According to mayor Siegfried Deinege, the final transfer has just come in and after that, Görlitz will be “on its own”. On a sidenote, this last transfer was “only” 340.000 Euros.

Speculations have been running rapid ever since the annual donations have started pouring in. Many believe that it was a trustfund that has now run out.

Whatever the story may have been … this stage of Görlitz´s mystery is over.

Which will be the next one?
