Published in Autumn 1997  Zeiss Historica Journal

Author: Larry Gubas

See Pages 6 – 8.

The author gives his impressions of his first trip to Jena, the home of Carl Zeiss, Ernst Abbe and Otto Schott. While it has been some years since the fall of the dreaded wall between East and West Germany, it had been a dream for much longer than that. Dr. Helga Beez who was the creator of the Optical Museum added pictures of the re-creation of the first Zeiss workshop.
