Our home town - Diez on the Lahn
House Böhnke

Like most houses in the old part of the town, this house used to be a farmhouse, with the manure piled in front of it and all the smell that goes with it. The painting was done by the well-known Diez painter Rudolf Fuchs.

The princess is Sophie Hedwig. She successfully defended the city against foreign troops in the 30-year war and managed to protect her citizens from any harm done to them. Sophie Hedwig had 10 children, eight of whom died. The High School of Diez is named after her (Sophie-Hedwig-Gymnasium).
