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?

We have had the pleasure to spend some time behind the scenes of the prequel to Habibie and Ainun and interview the producer Manoj Punjabi.
Rudi Habibie, the first President of Indonesia after dictator Suharto, studied in Aachen, Germany and Görlitz was chosen to best resemble the way that Aachen looked in the 1950s when Habibie studied there.
One thing making Görlitz very unique is the fact that the damage from the many wars taking place in the region was minimal. That is why to this day you can walk the streets and few monuments from the past 10 centuries.
When looking at WWII, a relatively tiny toll was taken. Here are a few examples:
Do you recognize these places?

Back in 1908, the Dr.-Kahlbaum-Allee was known as the promenade of trees where pedestrians could walk in the shade during the hot summer months.
As the technological revolution proceded, automobiles replaced the strolling citizens and the face of Görlitz was changed.
Now, the Stadtverwaltung is planning to bring back the old way and plant the trees where the old ones once were.
