Dresden is one of the most remarkable cities in Germany. It has stunning royal architecture from its history as the former capital of the German kingdom of Saxony (before unification, Germany was a patchwork of German kingdoms, city-states, etc.). If one wishes to discover ancient and inspiring German architecture, then Dresden is one of the places to start.

Germany also has the tallest church in the world – Ulm Minster. It has an incredible history and managed to survive the bombings of war – unlike the surrounding town. Germany is also home to some of the most impressive Roman ruins – especially Roman ruins north of the Alps – such as the famous Porta Nigra in the historic Roman city of Trier in western Germany.

Dresden – Germany’s historic city risen from the ashes

Dresden has a long history and was the royal residence of the Electors and Kings of Saxony. For centuries, these elites have provided the city with cultural and artistic splendour. It seemed to end abruptly with the devastating bombings of World War II. The bombardments left the city completely destroyed and razed to the ground.

  • Allied bombings: Completely destroyed the city
  • Communist East Germany: The largely neglected city

But after the war, the Germans set out to rebuild the historical parts of their beloved city so that they would not lose their heritage. But much of this work would have to wait for reunification and an end to communist neglect.

Fortunately, many of the city’s other treasures also managed to survive the war and today one can see vast collections of art and antiquities like royal garments on display in its world-class museums.

  • Location: State of Saxony, on the Elbe near the Czech Republic.
  • Museums: Dresden has many great museums
  • Reconstruction: Especially after German reunification

The reconstruction of Dresden is considered one of the greatest successes of post-war reconstruction. Today it is one of Germany’s most visited cities with millions flocking to see its lovingly reconstructed historic buildings. Dresden is one of the largest Baroque cities in Europe. The city is unaware of its destruction due to Allied bombing and Cold War-era neglect. It is now a city of gleaming palaces, blooming gardens and the beautifully reconstructed Frauenkirche.

The Frauenkirche

Much of the reconstruction took place only relatively recently, with the most important building, the Frauenkirche church, only having been rebuilt between 1994 and 2005.

The Frauenkirche (meaning “Church of Our Lady”) is a Lutheran (originally Catholic) church. It is one of the most remarkable sites in Dresden and has one of the largest domes in Europe. The building was built in the 18th century but destroyed by the Allies during the war.

  • Rebuilt: Between 1994 and 2005
  • Original stones: It was rebuilt with around 4,000 original stones

For 50 years the ruins remained a war memorial until the reunified German government decided to rebuild it. Reconstruction began in 1994 and the church was rededicated in 2005. It was rebuilt with approximately 4,000 original stones.

Today the church is open to the public and admission is free. You can also buy tickets to go up to the dome.

  • Admission: Free
  • Opening hours: Mon-Fri 10:00-12:00 & 13:00-18:00

Dresden Royal Palace and Museums

After the Frauenkirche, the most rewarding thing to see is the royal palace and museums of Dresden. It is one of the oldest public museums in Europe and one of the richest on the continent. It was the elector of Saxony, Augustus the Strong, who decided in 1723 that his royal collections should be open to the public. He then set out to transform his private treasure chambers into a public museum.

Inside Dresden’s Royal Square, one will find the Dresden State Art Collection which is filled with opulent court clothing, Augustus the Strong’s personal garden tools, works of art priceless and other elements of Saxony’s royal past. The collections include masterpieces of gold, jewellery, ivory and silver from the 14th to 18th centuries.

  • Preservation: Treasures were moved for safekeeping during the war
  • Address: Taschenberg 2, 01067 Dresden

Like other buildings in the city, parts of the palace like the Green Vault were mostly destroyed during the war and had to be rebuilt. In addition to the many treasures of the Green Vault, there are other attractions.

  • Turkish room: Founded in 1614, has one of the largest collections in the Ottoman Empire
  • Dresden Armory: Displays weapons and armor
  • Print cabinet: Shows Graphic Art, Drawings, Pastels By 15th Century European Artists

A tribute to one of Dresden’s most iconic hockey players is now a permanent fixture for the public.

The community celebrated Ken Houston’s career on Tuesday with the unveiling of a statue outside the Ken Houston Memorial Agricultural Center.

Hundreds of people, including Mayor Darrin Canniff, the Dresden minor hockey teams and the Houston family, were on hand for the unveiling of the bronze figure.

“It’s very important to the community,” said Ken Houston Scholarship Committee Member Gary Patterson. “He was a very special person in this community. He never forgot Dresden.

The six-foot, 200-pound Dresden native spent seven seasons in the NHL, playing for the Atlanta Flames, Calgary Flames, Washington Capitals and Los Angeles Kings.

“Ken was a legend,” Patterson said. “He was a tough-nosed player who played very well and didn’t take anything from anyone.”

In addition to fights, Houston is known to have had six 20-goal seasons during his NHL career. According to Patterson, Houston held the NHL record for most power-play goals in a five-game series until Wayne Gretzky passed it with six goals.

“Houston was a local guy and he stayed local,” Patterson said. “He loved this place. It was his town and he liked the people here. It’s a great moment here in Dresden and its hockey history.

Residents can find the statue just outside the gates at the east end of the arena. The unveiling of the statue coincided with the Dresden Minor Hockey Association’s awards night.

This year, the U15 and U18 teams are the 2022 Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) Champions.

“We have a big thing going on,” Patterson said. “We are also celebrating more champions in Dresden.”

Dresden’s iconic Christmas market square to close for two-year renovation

Considered the oldest of its kind, it was canceled in 2020 and 2021

The German city of Dresden has announced that on Monday April 25 it will close the city’s central square, the Altmarkt, until 2023. According to a statement from the city, the idea behind the redevelopment is to make the square more accessible and introduce climate adaptation measures.

The redevelopment will cost the authorities around 11.1 million euros and will be carried out in two phases, one in 2022 and one in 2023.

The Altmarkt is home to Striezelmarkt, or what many consider to be the world’s first Christmas market, as it was established as early as 1434. Striezelmarkt is also one of the largest seasonal markets of its kind and attracts around 3 million visitors each year.

The news of the redevelopment, however, may seem somewhat daunting to some, as the last two editions of Striezelmarkt, in 2020 and 2021, have been canceled due to COVID-19. However, local authorities decided to briefly reopen the square after the first phase of redevelopment in early December. After that, the construction of phase 2 will start in mid-January.

At the same time, the city indicates that all shops and restaurants will be accessible during the renovations. This includes eating out and, in some cases, deliveries.

Accessibility and climate adaptation

A cornerstone of the renovation plan is to extend supply and drain lines to the square, including water, waste and fiber optic capacities. At the same time, according to the city, the current cobblestone roadway makes the square very inaccessible to people with disabilities, especially those in wheelchairs. So they planned to repave the Altmarkt with smooth cut granite stone.

One of the biggest downsides to the Altmarkt in the summer is that it’s relatively open to the sun and lacks a sufficient layer of greenery, making it the perfect heat island. The city plans to change that by planting 20 trumpet trees.

Even Bennifer’s strength couldn’t make his new green diamond the most famous green diamond in the world, even after the bubble bath reveal. Her 8.5-carat modified cushion-cut brilliant-cut green diamond engagement ring may have introduced many around the world to the very idea that diamonds can be green, but the world’s most famous green diamond? Not yet. That title stands firm with a 41-carat stone in the center of a hatpin inside the Green Vault in Dresden.

It is rightly called the green diamond of Dresden. If you’ve been following the Lopez-Affleck engagement announcement, you’ve already heard about the rarity of green diamonds. Finding one at 8.5 carats, as Affleck did, is almost a miracle, so imagine how valuable 41 carats would be.

But the Dresden Green has more to its legend than its hue. It is believed to have been mined in the historic mines of Golconda in India. The diamonds of this legendary place are prized for their transparency and their purity (it is the lack of nitrogen in their composition). The mine has been extinct for centuries but its stones remain highly sought after, the jeweler’s equivalent of a Van Gogh. The Dresden Green also carries with it the depth of history and the triumph of surviving several twists of fate.

It was first discovered by a British merchant in 1722 and, according to custom, presented to King George. It seems he wasn’t interested, as The Dresden Green instead ended up at the Royal Court of Saxony and became part of the Golden Fleece Emblems. Around this time, notices of a greenstone appeared in a London newspaper with a price attached that was said to be worth around $7 million, or four tons of gold.

Frederick the Great of Prussia took his attention to it and decided it would look rather splendid worn on his hat, so diamonds were added and it was set like a pin – that’s how it remains visible today in the Dresden Green Vault, where it has been for almost three hundred years, almost without interruption, but not without drama. It was briefly captured by the Soviets during World War II. It made a brief trip to the United States via Harry Winston and was exhibited alongside the Hope Diamond at the Smithsonian. But back in Dresden, it was still fine. (This is starting to sound familiar, isn’t it?)

In November 2019, she made a rare trip to New York where she was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And it was there at the Met on November 25 when thieves broke into the Dresden Green Vault and stole countless historical treasures (they have since been apprehended but the jewels remain at large). They were undoubtedly in search of the most priceless gem of all, the largest of such a gem in the world. But the Dresden Green Diamond was safe, out of sight, far, far away. He was safely brought back to where he always belonged.

It’s a twist of fate that almost feels like a love story, isn’t it?

DRESDEN, Tenn. – Four months after the city of Dresden was hit by a tornado, there could be more severe weather in their path.

“There is a strong sense of anxiety and anticipation among our citizens, and there has been a lot of discussion in our community about this upcoming storm warning and the potential for a tornado. So people are afraid that we might have a repeat of December 10,” Dresden Mayor Jeff Washburn said.

Washburn says this time the city has safety measures in place in case the storm heads its way.

“We have a storm shelter that is going to be open in the courthouse behind us, and it will be open from 4:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. tomorrow night, which is the forecast danger time for this coming storm,” said said Washburn.

Washburn says it’s important for residents to be aware of the weather to ensure they’re prepared for what’s to come.

“It’s important that they seek appropriate shelter for a tornado. It could be the basement of a house or a storm shelter or some type of hardened structure that is not at risk of being blown away by a tornado or high winds,” Washburn said.

Washburn says it’s important to stay informed of potential extreme weather any way you can.

DRESDEN, Tennessee – In December, storms swept through four states and several cities and towns. One of them included Dresden.

“The house started dusting a bit, and you could see it and I was like it was for real,” Kimberly Koehn said.

“I dove down to the hall and sat down and heard the house start to break, and that’s the last we remember until we woke up in the field,” said Darwin Koehn.

They are the parents of 14-year-old Kyle Koehn.

During the December storms, the family had just returned home from dinner when a family friend informed them of the tornado warnings.

“He made the comment and he said keep your shoes on tonight,” Darwin Koehn said.

The storm almost destroyed the entire city of Dresden. And for the Koehns, most of the family was thrown 180 feet from their home.

Kyle Koehn was found a few meters away.

“He was moaning and I said, ‘Right there. This boy is badly hurt,” Darwin Koehn said.

“I don’t remember the pain so much. I just remember it was cold and wet,” Kyle Koehn said.

A few weeks after the tornado, Kyle Koehn was admitted to Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital. With his family also hospitalized in Tennessee, he made it a priority to focus on therapy.

“He had no feeling from his umbilicus, down to his navel, down. We knew this was a kid who was going to fight hard,” said Dr. Connie Simmons, a pediatrician at Rankin Georgia Pediatric Bridge Hospital.

And he did. After spending several weeks in therapy, Kyle Koehn was released on March 29.

However, it was not only his family who welcomed him warmly, but also people from his school.

“It’s going to be hard to leave. Honestly, they have become really good friends to us,” Kimberly Koehn said.

“They were wonderful. Couldn’t ask for more,” said Kyle Koehn.

Kyle Koehn still has some time to make a full recovery, but doctors expect him to continue improving every day.

Chatham-Kent will be home to 10 new pickleball courts over the next year and the Municipality is seeking public input on the best locations for the facilities.

In January, the Municipality learned that its application for community development grants through the Ontario Trillium Foundation had been approved.

The $430,000 grant will cover 80% of project costs.

The grant requires the project to be on municipal land and the construction to be new construction.

Existing pickleball or tennis courts are not eligible projects.

Courts can be installed as early as Spring/Summer 2022 with a completion deadline of Spring/Summer 2023.

Officials have identified Ellis Park in Chatham as the site for six courts, Jaycee Park in Wallaceburg as the location for two courts, and Jackson Park in Dresden as the new home for two courts.

Locations were selected based on community needs, current recreational assets in the communities, existence of pickleball groups for organized play, and appropriate space, accessibility and parking.

People who wish to give their opinion can answer a short survey at https://www.letstalkchatham-kent.ca/pickleball-court-locations

The survey is live now and will remain open until April 18.

I refer to Máirín Quill’s letter (Irish Independent, March 23), in which she wonders how such a great nation can inflict such evil. The nation she refers to is Russia.

World War II ended in September 1945. With the war almost won, the British and the United States annihilated Dresden in February 1945. In four air raids between February 13 and 15, 772 RAF and 527 US Army Air Force heavy bombers dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices.

The bombing created a firestorm and destroyed 1,600 acres of downtown.

An estimated 22,700 to 25,000 people were killed. There were 40 cubic meters of rubble for each surviving inhabitant of Dresden.

Seven narrow-gauge railways were built in Dresden and 5,000 workers were employed to clear the rubble, and clearing was not completed until 1958.

The women of Dresden formed a human conveyor belt moving the broken bricks in their buckets.

The image captured by German photographer Richard Peter, titled “View of Dresden from the Rathaus Tower”, has become the quintessential image of German rubble.

An exhibition of numerous rubble removal artists took place at the Army Museum on Nordplatz in Dresden.

Perhaps Mrs. Quill can contemplate how Britain and the United States fell so low towards the end of World War II. The head of the RAF was Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris. In 1992, Britain’s Queen Mother unveiled a statue of Harris, which sparked outrage over Dresden.

If the Earth were threatened, we would all unite to defend ourselves

I has been i just wondered if there was an external threat posed to the survival of the earth, all nations – including russia, usa, china, eu states and ukraine – would come together to defeat this extraterrestrial entity, whether extraterrestrial or meteorite.

In 1954, the Bilderberg Group was created in order to maintain peace in Europe and increase transatlantic trade with the United States and Canada. It is surely time for the Presidents of Russia and Ukraine to be invited to an emergency meeting of this powerful political group in a neutral venue where all issues can be debated under Chatham House rule.

No excuse for the UK, US and France not to go to war

I to understand Rory O’Connor’s view that Germany is reluctant to be dragged into war with Russia because of post-traumatic stress caused by its history in two world wars, in particular the unconscionable genocide of Jews by the Nazis and the murder of millions of civilians. First World War? No country was innocent. But, I am led to believe that the UK, the US and, to some extent, France were the winners. What is their psychological excuse for doing nothing?

Remembering a mother who did her best for her children

My mother passed away 30 years ago, but I think of her often, not just on Mother’s Day.

I think of the widowed woman with two children and another born five days after the death of her husband. Left without a husband or a home, she raised us in a rented room in another family’s house, as was the norm at the time, until she got a home of her own.

She was mother and father to us, taking all the available work and trimming and scratching to ensure our survival.

Nothing was ever wasted – she was recycling before the word was coined.

She neither drank nor smoked. She loved her garden and I think she was happy with how we all got together.

Her name was Nora and she was the best mother we could have wished for.

No more Fine Gael kite – this time from Simon Harris

What is it Fine Gael and kite flying? Once again we had to listen to a Fine Gael minister, Simon Harris in this case, kite-flying over the reduction (or even elimination) of the €3,000 student levy.

So, with three children, one of whom is already in the third degree, he had my attention.

Fast forward a few months and I hear none of this is going to happen – instead we get a €200 increase in the Susi grant (Student Universal Support Ireland). Cue the disappointment once again.

This grant is a joke, given that it is based on gross income in a country with very high taxes and living costs. I’m going to give my vote to another party – not that we’re spoiled for choice.
