Engl. Originaltext - about us

On June 8, 1999, we, the political scientist Susanne Rieger from Munich and the contempo- rary historian and archivist Gerhard Jochem from Nuremberg, started the homepage rijo- Our intention was to create an independent and non-commercial platform for topics, people and their stories not being in the mainstream of the media, in addition to our publications in books, magazines and newspapers. Since then, the criteria for consideration remained the same: We write about anything which subjectively appeals to us as being worth of writing about, which we strongly like or dislike, preferably in Nuremberg and Munich, whether concerning history, urban development or architecture - and try not to lose our sense of humor when doing so. At the same time we offer web space and our by now well established brand name to people who share our views.

Consequently the dynamics of the project caused a widening of its scope regarding the times, spaces and subjects which are covered. With this approach we succeeded in initiating public discussions, e.g. about forced labor during WW2 in the Nuremberg region and its compensa- tion, supplying facts which eventually led to political action, lately the creation of the memo- rial on Plärrer square in October 2007. By such activities we did not only make friends but our coat of arms displays a (when it has to be) pugnacious porcupine and in moments of doubt the truth is a guideline which always can be trusted. Thus a lot is left to be done, particularly research on the perpetrators of Nazi injustice before and after 1945 or the volatile fashions of Erinnerungskultur.

An essential part of our concept has always been to reach out to eyewitnesses such as Jewish refugees, former forced laborers or prisoners of war and migrants, for which purpose rijo- is bilingual German and English since its beginnings. Later we were able to in- clude also texts in other foreign languages by various guest authors.

on March 5, 2006, rijo 2.0 went online.

the magazine and book series transit nürnberg which we introduced to the public in March 2007. Its title and contents embody our entire philosophy, 2010 in its 4th issue, a German-English book of 300 pages dealing with the rela- tions between this city and the USA since 1945.

Starting in May 2011 we are also present in the social media, paralleling the structure of our website by a German Facebook site of testimon print and an English branch by the customary name of which since October 2012 we use for our German Twitter channel, too (@rijo_research). Its English pendant is dedicated to our idol as far as humor and human- ity are concerned, Julius Groucho Marx: @julius_marx.
