Hesse: Answering questions about the lives of ancestors with monuments

Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The President of the State Office for the Preservation of Monuments in Hesse, Markus Harzenetter, has described monuments as important resources for defining one's own location. The "Open Monument Day" invites you to "dive deep into the past and have experts explain how and for what reasons we preserve traces of the past," said Harzenetter at the request of the German Press Agency in Wiesbaden.

The motto of the day "Cultural trail. A case for the protection of monuments" draws attention to the research perspective in the preservation of monuments. This is intended to show that every successful repair is based on a thorough preliminary examination by experts from building research and restoration. "The testimonies of earlier times give us valuable answers to the question of how our ancestors lived and how they reacted to the challenges of their time," explained Harzenetter. "As in forensic science, these testimonies are recovered, documented and secured with great sensitivity and great expertise."

The "Day of the Open Monument" takes place every year on the second Sunday in September. The program is free of charge and is organized by the German Foundation for Monument Protection. This year, for the 30th time, up to 8,000 properties in around 2,500 towns and communities will open their doors nationwide. Thousands of events are also supplemented by digital formats.
