Leipzig!: One Thousand Years of German History - Bach, Luther, Faust: The City of Books and Music by Sebastian Ringel

Bringing to life the stories of the ordinary and famous Leipzigers, this book takes readers through the 1,000-year-old history of the city of books and music. This book contains a rich history of Leipzig, from St. Thomas Church where Johann Sebastian Bach composed his cantatas to Martin Luther’s dispute of the future of Christianity at Germany’s second oldest university to the rallies at the St. Nicholas Church that led to the downfall of Communism. Located at the meeting point of historic imperial roads, Leipzig is also the site of one of the world’s oldest and largest book fairs. A sweeping overview, this book highlights the famous stories of what is now a splendidly rebuilt city.
