Bürger, Brücken und Duelle: Die Geschichte der Großstadt Saarbrücken (Translated: Citizens, Bridges, and Duels: The History of the city of Saarbruecken) is a new book from authors Dieter Gräbner and Stefan Weszkalnys. In April 2009, the 100th anniversary of Saarbrücken as an aggregation of the three former towns Saarbrücken, St. Johann and Malstatt/Burbach was celebrated. Former mayors, business people, celebrities and normal citizens share their memories about the changeful history of Saarbruecken in the 20th century. Under the headline Newspapers and books – jewelry and watches one chapter describes the history of the Hofer/Kraemer family, being the founders of Saarbruecken’s newspaper, the popular Kraemer Jewelry Store and the watch brand NIVREL. A detailed interview with Dr. Anja Hofer, Sven Hofer and Dr. Guido Grohmann gives a small insight into the entrepreneurial work of the family.
