Law alumnus Dieter Gräf: “Und in Jene lebt sich’s bene” (And in Jena life is good) – A ramble through student life as depicted on picture postcards of Jena and “Couleurpostkarten” (coloured postcards from student societies) with scenes from student life.
After the introduction of the postcard, it became the custom in the 19th and 20th centuries to send cards with short messages and greetings. As well as being a foray into the history of the postcard, the book contains images of old picture postcards of Jena, student society cards and emblems of Jena student societies that are mementoes of a bygone culture of communication. This book aims to preserve memories of the academic life of students in the past – their traditions, customs and societies.
