Remembrance needs places

“Remembrance needs places” (Erinnerung braucht Orte”) is a talk being given by Gerd Krämer, previously Oberursel’s Mayor, on Thursday, 27th June, 2013 at 6pm in the Kinderhaus, Jean-Sauer-Weg 2, about how important it is not just to talk about history but to have places to go and see the buildings and locations for real.
