Anthology Sønderjylland-Schleswig Kolonial

The cultural legacy of colonialism in the region between Eider and Königsau

The anthology Sønderjylland-Schleswig Kolonial, edited by Marco Petersen in 2018, deals with the Danish-German colonial history in 21 contributions from different perspectives. The articles are all written in Danish or German and focus on different aspects that highlight the colonial connections: from shipping, Flensburg bricks and mahogany wood to museum objects, schools and personalities such as Sönke Nissen.

In addition to the anthology, the Sønderjylland-Schleswig Colonial Project has also produced a map of colonial sites in the Sønderjylland-Schleswig region, which includes a number of sites in Flensburg with photographs and brief information.
