This year Niedersachen/Lower Saxony celebrates 75 yrs of its existence having been drawn on a map Post WW2.

NDR (North German TV) is broadcasting a progamme on 2 Jun 21, with a voice over by John Goodyear of Birmingham University (in German), to commemorate the occasion - a second 75 minute programme will be transmitted in October covering more of the history and featuring newsreels and interviews and some interviews Prof. Goodyear has conducted with veterans of the former BAOR.

https://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendungen/unsere_geschichte/Wie-wir-wurden-was-wir-sind,sendung1156292.html 

The longer 75-minute version will be shown in October, i.e. nearer to the actual anniversary itself.

PostSubject: Appeal for Historical Keepsakes at NDR   Happy 75th Birthday Niedersachsen/Lower Saxony Icon_minitime18/5/2021, 13:41

75 yrs Northern Saxony   - first report above (early hours 18 May 21)

(Birth of New States - https://www.lwl.org/westfaelische-geschichte/que/normal/que1167.pdf Ordinance No. 46. Article V This Ordinance shall be deemed to have become effective
on 23rd August 1946)

Not surprisingly the TV link and its associated files asks for donation of  artefacts,
documents, photos and remiscences of the time to enrich the planned historical section in the Niedersachsen exhibitions  or museums - see below

"Rummage in your boxes and cupboards: Perhaps you will discover things that you only really appreciate today. If your personal memento, your personal "treasure", is connected to an event that also has a meaning for the state of Lower Saxony: Simply take a photo of it and attach it to the form below,
in which you can also give us your personal memories - write about them. The data you transmit will only be passed on to the production company entrusted with the project. So you can share your memento and its history with us. We look forward to your "little treasure(s)" - thank you very much!

https://www.ndr.de/nachrichten/niedersachsen/unserschatz/index.html form is at foot of article in German,  it includes a "release paragraph"  to handover
if you fll in the German form there is a send link at the bottom to push your formatted e-mail into the ether.  Otherwise a contact address for the NDR is:

https://www.ndr.de/geschichte/chronologie/1-November-1946-Das-Land-Niedersachsen-wird-gegruendet,niedersachsen814.html

Should read in English, the first paragraph:

The "Ordinance No. 55" of the British military government officially established the state of Lower Saxony with the capital Hanover on November 1, 1946. The first state government under Prime Minister Hinrich Wilhelm Kopf has to solve immense problems.

Have a copy of the original document of the day in German and English somewhere on my hard drive but cannot find...

PostSubject: NDR TV Birth of Niedersachsen Nov 1945   Happy 75th Birthday Niedersachsen/Lower Saxony Icon_minitime6/6/2021, 18:25

Here is a link to the TV show, it is in German but easy to follow,

https://www.ardmediathek.de/video/unsere-geschichte/happy-birthday-niedersachsen/ndr-fernsehen/Y3JpZDovL25kci5kZS8wN2IxZmQxMS0wNWExLTQxNzYtOGMyNi1jNzlkZmI0MTAxNjE/

there will be a follow-up 90 minute programme in  October 2021.

Anyone with input for the presenter can e-mail him here

John Goodyear      j.goodyear@bham.ac.uk

his speciality interest is the town of Oldenburg  from British or Canadian or even Norwegen standpoints in the post-war era.
