Christina/ August 12, 2021/ Culture, Ideas of philosophy

I could not get the lecture on the industrialists Spiegelberg and Büssing out of my mind. Therefore my inquisitiveness leads me to Vechelde yesterday where I can literally walk in Spiegelberg’s shoes. On the spot I am faced with an unexpected finding.
