On the trail of bricks and guns

If you look closely, you can read in the landscape how people used to live. Where did they dig up the clay for the bricks in their houses, where did they set up anti-aircraft positions during World War II, why did they set up field crosses or wayside shrines? On Tuesday, August 30, between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., the evening show of Bavarian television broadcasts a report on the Kulturlandschaftsforum project, which explores such questions. In the district of Fürstenfeldbruck , too, numerous history-loving volunteers are taking part in the project. The evening show looked over the shoulder of one of them, Fritz Aneder.

Aneder looks for clues in the landscape itself, but also in historical maps and other sources, which he enters into a database and an interactive map. The entries are checked by Thomas Büttner, a scientist from the State Association for Home Care, and published on the website www. kulturlandschaftsforum-bayern.de published. There you can find exciting discoveries for the next walk. Anyone who would like more information or would like to participate can contact kulturlandschaft@hvf-ffb.de .
