The Leipzig Book Fair is in town since Thursday and is after the Frankfurt Book Fair, the second largest in Germany. They held each year in mid-March at the Leipzig Fair. The top position as an rich and internationally known book- and publishing city must Leipzig leave the eternal rival Frankfurt after war unfortunately.

In fact. The advantage of Leipzig was the location and the city was far from being reached by the bomber pilots. Nevertheless, by the air strikes was a big part of the city in ruins. Overall, 40% of homes and 80% of the fair buildings were destroyed or severely damaged. Many of the destroyed historical buildings were not rebuilt. Until the 60's major buildings were blown up mercilessly in the city center.

A further advantage was again after the war the situation. While in the western zone of occupation many cities ruins of the "car-friendly city", with wide streets and "modern, smooth architecture" fell victim in Leipzig many buildings were neglected and fell into disrepair. Then the German reunification came in the last minute, and many houses were rehabilitated and shine again today in a new light.

Leipzig was a long time not as stunning as it looks now. But since the last few years the city experienced a small renaissance, which is reflected in an unusually high population growth and a major renovation activity.



Although it seems incredible, but forfeited so once was the proud city of Leipzig. It looked not only at individual roads, but in almost the whole city that way:






Luckily here came the great rescue!
