38th Borgward International Meeting Annaberg-Buchholz 2012



Dear Borgward Friends,

We cordially invite you to our 38th Int. Borgward Meeting in Annaberg-Buchholz. We
are very pleased for the first time for more than 20 years, a Borgward meeting in our new federal state of Saxony, and thus our connection to the local Oldtimer to show friends.

Short review: The Soviet Union set up the communist government of the German Democratic Republic in 1949, with Saxony a part of it, giving the USSR a satellite in the heart of Europe. The communist government officially dissolved the Free State in 1952, and divided it into the three smaller Bezirke of Leipzig, Dresden, and Karl-Marx-Stadt. The Free State was reconstituted with slightly altered borders in 1990 upon German reunification. Besides the formerly Silesian area of Saxony, which was mostly included in the territory of the new Saxon state, the free state gained further areas north of Leipzig, which belonged to Saxony-Anhalt until 1952. Who would have ever thought?

Annaberg-Buchholz is nestled in the scenic Ore Mountains near the Czech Republic.
With 21,000 inhabitants it is the county seat of Erzgebirgskreises. It offers breathtaking, romantic landscapes. Annaberg is also a mining region. Today miners still work at the dangerous activities
the reduction of silver ore and other precious metals.
We look forward to seeing you again in Annaberg-Buchholz. Since the hotel rooms are limited , you should book early.
