[Nortorf 1910 to 2010.]
Nortorf was awarded town privileges in 1909. Since then, it developed into an important location for industry, became the home of many new inhabitants and gradually turned into a regional centre for administration, services and schools. On the basis of intensive archival research, three historians from Kiel trace Nortorfs colourful history in the 20th century and present a plethora of new insights and findings. Julian Freche in his article deals with the period from 1909 to the end of the Weimar Republic. Martin Göllnitz analyses the darkest era in Nortorfs history, the years of the „Third Reich“. Matthias Jürgensen looks at the decades from 1945 to 2009 and traces the political, social, economical, and cultural development of the town into the regional centre it is today. With its well-written, thouroughly researched articles and its many fully coloured illustrations, this book is a must-read for everyone interested not only in the history of Nortorf itself, but in the local and regional history of Schleswig-Holstein in the 20th century.
