It is the capital of the Nordhausen district and the urban centre of northern Thuringia and the southern Harz region. Nordhausen was first mentioned in the year 927 and became one of the most important cities in central Germany during the later Middle Ages. In the early 13th century, it became a free imperial city, so that is was an independent and republican self-ruled member of the Holy Roman Empire. Due to its long-distance trade, Nordhausen was prosperous and influential with a population of 8,000 around 1500. Following the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte, Nordhausen was included in the Kingdom of Prussia's Province of Saxony created in 1816. During the mid-19th century, the industrialisation started in Nordhausen. WWII saw Nordhausen came to prominence with the establishment of the Peenemunde rocket facility where Werner von Braun worked. With its destruction after extensive Allied bombing a concentration camp was established. After the war it became part of East Germany. This is the second volume in the history.
