3 EDITORIAL I EDITORIAL Dear fellow citizens, We hope that you had an excellent vacation, that you were able to recharge the batteries in order to face all new challenges in the coming weeks. The coming autumn weeks will be very lively on a political level with the upcoming national elections on October 20th. As for the education sector, after a year of preparatory work, the major restructuring project will start on the campus of the Wiltzer elementary schools and Maisons Relais. A conversation with the mayor will give you more information about the motives and goals of this project. As for university teaching, after the success of the first class in 2012, a second class will begin this year in the Hotel and Management BBI. The number of students should continue to grow steadily over the next few years, including a second university that has been officially recognized by the ministry, which should also help to dynamize the city of Wiltz accordingly. Together with the Lycée du Nord, the 2 school campuses testify to the will of the city of Wiltz to position itself as an educational location in the north of Luxembourg in the long term. This dynamism can certainly also be seen in the 600 companies that are based in the canton of Wiltz. We were interested in 2 of them: the traditional Quincaillerie Schaeffer shop and the locksmith's workshop Atelier Winandy, which we will introduce to you in detail in this issue. The Nuit des Lampions is also evolving year after year and, on the occasion of its 7th edition, will make use of the picturesque setting of the Jardins de Wiltz as well as the entire Place des Martyrs. You will certainly not miss this extraordinary cultural festival, just as you will certainly take the opportunity to attend the Fête de la Rentrée of the Wiltzer primary schools and Maisons Relais or the Gudden Noper Dag from the CIGR Wiltz Plus. In order to develop further and to plan its future in the long term, a municipality has to constantly invest in its infrastructure and redesign its public space. Several construction sites in the city of Wiltz are evidence of these projects. You will find some information about their status in this newspaper. Don't miss out on using more public transport in Wiltz during the Semaine de la Mobilité, it's free all week.

Wiltz is said to be an important attraction in the Ardennes. If you consider that the entire Ardennes region (Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and France) has around 60 million inhabitants and that these are potential customers for a short stay in Luxembourg, it seems logical to promote tourism in Wiltz and also as a Community to invest in a strategically meaningful project. In the medium term, jobs with different qualifications could be created in different areas and ultimately benefit the economy. The future base régionale de loisirs en plein air KAUL should offer a diverse range of activities in the areas of sport and leisure. But the center should not only attract tourists, it will also be accessible to the residents of the city or the region. The KAUL leisure center is to be seen and managed as a whole in the future. In the medium term, the area will consist of a CampingPark, an AquaPark, a BikePark and a SpillPark and will gradually become an attractive visitor center again. In addition, there are the various existing leisure activities in Wiltz and the surrounding area, such as the tennis and badminton hall but also parachuting on the airfield in Noertringen, the hiking and cycling trails in the Ardennes, as well as the KlammPark planned in the industrial wasteland and much more The following goal is envisaged: A CampingPark, which should offer a wide variety of accommodations (caravans, mobile homes, safari tents, mega-pods and tipis) in different price categories

13 News i ACTUALITES Work i Travaux Modernized buildings, newly roofed living spaces with sociable meeting points, both inside and outside, should fit into the overall picture, including the swimming pool and the green spaces. The diverse range of activities is also to be improved by a new on-site organization. With regard to the AquaPark, emphasis is placed on better organization and marketing. Beyond the municipality of Wiltz, it should also address the neighboring municipalities of Bauschleiden, Esch-Sauer, Eschweiler, Goesdorf, Kiischpelt, Winseler, Wintger and the Obersauer Nature Park, possibly even the municipalities in the border area with Belgium. The ambience should be made more appealing in the future in order to create a holiday mood. The new BikePark on the front part of the site, which has not been used for years, is intended to make the overall offer in the KAUL more attractive and to offer the opportunity to organize training camps. The SpillPark for children is already being planned. The managers of the Kannerbureau Wooltz are currently carrying out a playground check in Wiltz and other places in Luxembourg in order to be able to plan a playground together with the children that is completely tailored to the wishes and needs of the target group. The entire area offers enormous potential to create a really great playground and this not only for the families with children who are on vacation in Wiltz, but also for the children from the city and the neighboring communities. In summary, it can be said that a great leisure location can be created on the site of today's Camping KAUL, which can offer variety, games, fun and relaxation and has the potential to attract many tourists to Wiltz and offer them a nice stay. Close cooperation with regional and national partners is sought and would therefore also benefit the entire Ardennes region

Lycée du Nord Today's Lycée du Nord was founded in 1969 under the name Collège d enseignement moyen et professionnel du Nord (CEMPN) and at that time consisted of the two schools Collège d enseignement moyen and Center professionnel. From 1979 the CEMPN officially became a technical lyceum and was named Lycée technique du Nord (LTN). From 1975 onwards, numerous new classes and school cycles were introduced and so the expansion of the premises and buildings has been planned over and over again since the last expansion work of the Lycée du Nord (LNW), which has since been renamed, has been completed.Today, schoolchildren from over 100 localities visit this important regional educational structure and the school offer includes not only the classical and technical high school but also school classes to learn various trades such as carpentry classes, locksmiths, electrical engineers or mechanics, etc. In the last school year, the Lycée du Nord can also draw attention to themselves positively with the results of the final exams, because a student from the LNW managed to place herself among the best in the country. The LNW is an extremely important contribution to positioning the city of Wiltz as an educational location in the north of our country. University campus in Wiltz Castle BBI Brussels Business Institute The BBI was founded in Brussels in 1990 and for a long time was the only university of its kind in Europe. The BBI distinguishes itself as a private vocational school with an international format. Due to the close ties between the hotel industry and the tourism industry, many students attach great importance to working in the hotel or business area after completing their studies. To have tourism management trained, as this promises better chances on today's job market. When looking for an additional location, the responsible persons at BBI found that part of the Wiltzer Castle, which was used by the old people's home until 2011, was available. Due to the good transport links to the Belgian motorway network, the quiet location of the castle and the optimal cooperation with the city fathers of Wiltz, the city stood out as an ideal location. Expanding the pillars of education and tourism are among the city's strategic objectives. The main language at BBI is English and in Wiltz there is the option of completing a Bachelor's (3-year) or Master's degree. The apprenticeship year begins in September and lasts until June. A three-month internship is completed in the summer months. Last year, according to James Gendarme, responsible for BBI in Wiltz, 20 students from a total of 8 nations visited the BBI university campus in Wiltz. 45 students from 10 nations have registered for the coming apprenticeship year from September. From January 2014, another 10 students are to be added. UBI United Business Institute After the successful establishment of the BBI in Wiltz, a lease agreement was signed on March 14, 2013 between the municipal administration and those responsible at UBI, which should enable this university to offer courses in the field of finance in Wiltz. The UBI is a private university of applied sciences, which was founded in 1992 in Brussels and here too the main language is English. It is planned to offer the Bachelor and Master courses in business administration in Wiltz from the 2014/2015 apprenticeship year. The planned establishment of another university of applied sciences in Wiltz shows that the political vision of a university campus in Wiltz was quite realistic. A win-win effect for everyone involved, because the city of Wiltz, whose desire is to position itself as the regional capital in the field of education, sees itself confirmed in its efforts and the universities of applied sciences BBI and UBI benefit for their part from the establishment of a historic one , renowned place with a quiet location which favor the studies

I know Villes vum Héieresoen, from the stories from big parents, paperboard or moms, or sossed Lekt from the family dei den Kriich matgemeet hoan. Villes hoa mir och iwwert de Krich jellies. D Iwwerliwerung, oan déi Generatiounen déi no eis to come, from the experiences gained, ass extremely important, best of the direct dialogue mat deene Jonken, mee och iwwert hir parents, d schoul, d media in general déi completely civil society. D fate vum Krich, vum Leed a vum Doud doarf eis ni don't care sënn. Oh hokt, iwwer 70 Joar méi spéit. Emmer méi Tezitzeien, the ice after esou en direct Témoignage could begin, closed ice los a los an esou knows the challenge, fir ouni déi Tezitzeien the causes of the Krich neutral, apolitical to objectively opzee for op esou the next generation of the important knowledge Wee ze start.

So even when the Steng lo wechrappen to herno after just tight Gedénkplack at the portal to the Kamäin and this day errënneren sou rappen to me history nik wech, the story, written in 1942, started as an déi op éwig matt Wooltz stuck.

Et hott vill civil courage dorzou honored for organizing this strike at duerchzeféieren. Déi Lekt honn domatten sécher vill Lewen gerett, mee dofir hiirt eegent Leewen lost to esou hir family to grief hannerloss. All déi leaks, déi in 1942 at och on the zeit dono géint the occupation agesat honn, däerf ice city on eist land never forgotten. Dofir organized the city of Wooltz with great pride alljoers at the national strike memorial, August 31st, the commemoration ceremony fir deenen ze, the matt hirem courage a Leewen eis Freiheet made possible. I wëll dofir soargen, déi terrible Zait an iron land nik vergees gëtt. Iwwerall to Europe to op der Welt meaningful parties on the aisle, close group of the populatioun to make all problematic in our society responsable. Unfortunately, the date renewed quite sharply and the deadline for 80 years. D Receiving the identity of a narrow country ass richteg, ewer si d nik e Virwand sënn fir e misunderstood nationalism. Déi vill Affer, déi d Lëtzeburger am leste Krich broacht hoan, should op d mannst dofir soorgen, déi future generations ni méi esou eppes zoulossen. Me hoan d duty, dofir ze soorgen datt och weiderhin mat respect oan déi erënnert gëtt, déi fir eis gelidden hoan, déportéiert, forcibly recruited or dout met gi sënn. Dëse Mutt, dësen civil courage, de voluntary Asaz, déi solidarity from all individual, së Wäerter, déi seldom made sense of this busy society. It goes without saying that I am enjoying a prosperity at Fridde leewen. Fir awer ee existing social cohesion and guarantee to the future, wier et important datt me, an och déi haktig a coming generatiounen esou Gesellschaftswäerter most quickly gémfannen rëmfannen. The prosperity at de Fortschrëtt, sunnesch ewer och the Fridden së nik voam Heaven, that everything that was measured began to be created. The hoan is called to Wooltz an op aner plazen in the country, trade unionists to Awoaner all hire Mutt an d hand went to hoan to the general strike opgeruff. Och when ice society is hooked six munchmol schwéier deet mat the Woort strike, well ee strike often as narrow public harassment ougesinn gëtt, ass et ewer hooks consciously, but doduerch deemools vill moved could begin.

Wéi from a close local strike, dee viroan the portal of the leather factory Ideal hot to Wooltz August 31, 1942 moies em 6:00 am Auer oagang ass, six close movement op d Stad Wooltz an dono iwwert dat all over the country iwwerdroen hott an esou a national strike arose ass. Hokt can een soen, that this strike with the Allies at the Krich was completely recognized as a strike by the Lëtzeburger Vollëk oanass, an esou essentially dozu zudroen hott, that narrowly no picture of Lëtzeburig as a resistance nation arose.Esou gouf der Welt klor gemeet, that the Grand Duchy seng Eegesteenigkeet géint Nazi Germany always wanted to be. Deemols must have received the Nazi occupation from the Nazi occupation, so Si nik would have declared the exception status on August 31st. Through the strike, the Englishmen and the Americans, the Dag no of the liberation Lëtzeburig an der Nokrichsordnung och directly op déi right Sait sat, nik wéi another country from Europe. That would be hot to Wooltz at op aner places in the country, so fir déiwigkeet as deen day ago, wou read all hire Mutt an d hand helped honn fir géint the däitsch occupiers were there. The Fro has to face all individual things: whether deemols esou would have reacted to me, de courage would have gone on strike, any consequences dovoaner ze droen! As a member voam Gemengerot voan the city of Wooltz, weess ech wéi stoark de Gemengenrot an ice city drop, instead of me the Evenementer von Deemols hold a renewal.
