The favorite book of Mariann Juha
Mariann Juha worked in the Iron Library for two weeks as a scholar-in-residence studying literature relating to mining history. Her project "Mining Traditions. The Intangible Legacy of Mining" deals with the question of what links the populations of Europe's former mining centers. The starting point for her research is the former silver-mining town Banská Štiavnica (Schemnitz in German). During her research she came across her favorite book, a fascinating travelogue.
