The stadtsteinach contribution to the "day of the francs was all about the town of stadtsteinach and the local poet jakob hoffmann.
Mayor roland wolfrum slipped into the role of the stadtsteinach original at the event. "I am the hoffmanns jakob, I am known everywhere. Living in stadtsteinach, in upper frankenland. I was born in bergleshof, in the beautiful franconian forest, and I'm in my prime, but not too old yet, he presented the stadtsteinach legend in the small event room at the home museum.
For the dialect
Throughout his life, jakob hoffmann had taken up the cudgels for dialect. "You have to keep the "heimatsproch", egol wu du bist. This applies to young and old alike, whether it's here or abroad", jakob hoffmann from stadtsteinach once wrote a poem. The mayor not only read from the original book of poems, but an exhibition about jakob hoffmann was also shown in the museum of local history. For hoffmann, who died six years ago at the age of 91, was born in 1915. So in two years he would have been 100 years old.
