Saxon Mining Calendar Sheds New Light on the History of Miners and Smelters

The “Original Saxon Mining Calendar” has been covering various topics from the history of the regional mining industry for 18 years. No other format has so far been continuously presenting ever newer aspects of Saxony’s most prominent cultural asset. The publishers Jens Kugler, René König and Dr. Rudolf Störr offer their latest edition under the headline “Traditionals of Saxon Mining 2011” (ISBN-13: 978-3981356540). Alongside exclusive archive photos the twelve calendar sheets illustrate lyrics and traditionals from the Saxon mining industry’s oral culture. A strictly limited special edition of the calendar “Mining Motives on German Emergency Money 2011” (ISBN-13: 978-3981356557) will accompany the release of this historical calendar.

In German terminology, the word “Bergreyhen” is referenced as umbrella term for the more than 500 years old musical culture of the Saxon Ore Mountains. A Saxon miners’ rite of the early 16th century, for example, asked every shift’s foreman to bind other workers to be singers for the respective shift. A first “Mining Singers Order” ruled the musical accompaniment of this cultural asset during the 17th century. Traditionally, these songs address topics such as a miner’s professional pride but also dangers and burdens of the mining work. Despite employing various musical means, all of the lyrics identify the mining industry’s professional idioms. The most important and the most popular of these are collected in “Traditionals of Saxon Mining 2011”. On the pages of this publication, the lyrics of traditional mining songs are presented alongside exclusive contemporary footage from the regional archives. In this way, the calendar manages to connect the mining industries of the past with the present ones.

“Traditionals of Saxon Mining 2011” casts new light on the history of Saxon miners and smelters. The calendar provides an insight into the historical world of day-to-day work in the mines and visualizes continuities in presenting newly discovered records from the photo archives. The exclusive photos show unseen motives from Saxony’s old mining activities, for example from the mining districts of Brand-Erbisdorf, Freiberg, Schneeberg and other mining galleries. All of the photos are solely used for this calendar and cannot be found in any other publication.

A further detail of the mining history is uncovered by the strictly limited calendar “Mining Motives on German Emergency Money 2011”. On 12 sheets the publication illustrates the various motives of historical mining activities that were used as images on German emergency money during the 1920s depression. Both wall calendars are now available at
