The citizens’ medals 2012 were awarded to:

1. Manfred Kopp for his work as a local historian, which includes putting together the archive of documents about Camp King, 1933-1993.  The archive is due to be re-located to its new permanent home in the “Kinderhaus”, previously known as “House Florida”.  Since 2003 he has also been responsible for training the town guides (“Stadtführer”) and he himself offers several tours of the Camp King area each year.

2. Inge and Dr. Eberhard Laeuen, who were among the initiators of the working group “Nie wieder 1933” (never again 1933), which was set up in 1981 to research and document the crimes that took place during the Nazi period in Oberursel.  They were also among the initiators of the “Initiative Opferdenkmal e.V.” (victims’ memorial) foundation in 2008, whose aim is to create a lasting memorial for the victims of the National Socialist regime who came from the town.

They received their medals during the Bürgerempfang in November 2012.
