History

Current Pabuca topic. Hmm, I’ve shown several photos containing Pfaffenhofen’s history in one kind or another before. So what should I take this time?

I decided I get something from the archive: from last year’s celebration of the 575th anniversary of when Pfaffenhofen was first mentioned as town (the place itself existed before: first mentioned in 1140, “market” in 1197, “oppidum” in 1318).

Bouncing town halls – that is, bouncing castles looking like the town hall – probably aren’t that old:

But documents may be so old:

And a genuine photo from the city’s marching band back then: ;)

Projekt 52: Memories/Remembrance

One of May’s topics of Projekt 52:

Projekt 52 May: Memories/Remembrance

It may be a bit controversial whether happy souvenir photos like from these guys or children running around are befitting a memorial like Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial, but since these concrete stelae are rather abstract and not on historic grounds anyway and apparently well integreted into city life, I wouldn’t take it too seriously. After all, it’s still better than ignoring it completely…
