Historical overview

After 1251 in today's urban area within the territorial politics of was Meissen Margrave Henry the Illustrious City Fürstenberg the Association of Niederlausitz founded. In 1286 it is attested as a civitas and customs post. In the 14th century, Emperor Charles IV ordered the construction of a city wall. From 1316 to 1817, the monastery was entitled to the Neuzelle monastery, with few interruptions . The council formed in the first half of the 14th century held the lower courts, and together with the abbot von Neuzelle also the higher courts.

After the Peace of Prague in 1635, Fürstenberg and Lower Lusatia became part of the Electorate of Saxony , and in 1815 it fell to Prussia . The small town located off the Frankfurt (Oder) - Guben highway on a less important Oder ferry, but important as a customs post, in which fishing and shipping were also carried out, had 1,686 inhabitants in 1830. With the construction of the railway from Frankfurt (Oder) to Breslau in 1846 and following the Oder-Spree Canal, which flows into the Oder (1891), an industrial development began with glassworks , shipyards , sawmills , oil and grain mills . The city's Jewish community began using its cemetery in 1890 , which was later destroyed by the Nazis. Between 1871 and 1900 the population doubled to 5,700, by 1933 it had increased to 7,054. In 1925 an Oder harbor was created.

For the war preparations of the National Socialists (now Beeskower road) which was created between the channel, the railway line and the Schönfließer Chaussee Chemical Zentralwerkstatt of Degussa , in which during the Second World War prisoners of a satellite camp of Sachsenhausen concentration camp and prisoners of war of the M main camp III B (POW Team main camp) performed forced labor that killed thousands. They were also used in the Oder device construction, an armaments factory outsourced from Rheinmetall -Borsig , in the Vogelsang power plant on the Oder, in forestry and in road construction. Between 1940 and 1943 the GBI port was built on the Oder-Spree Canal , with a granite store for the planned imperial capital , today's port of Eisenhüttenstadt .

On April 24, 1945 the Red Army occupied the city. Fürstenberg (Oder) became a garrison town for the Soviet troops . Most of the industrial facilities were dismantled as a reparation payment.

On the III. At the SED party congress from July 20 to 24, 1950, the decision was made to build the Eisenhüttenkombinat Ost (EKO) and a socialist residential town near Fürstenberg (Oder). The new residential town was to be built according to the “ 16 principles of urban development ” and in the architectural style of socialist classicism .

On August 18, 1950, the symbolic first ax cut was made to start construction on the ironworks combine. On January 1, 1951, Minister Fritz Selbmann laid the foundation stone for the first blast furnace , which went into operation on September 19, 1951. Five more blast furnaces were built by 1955. On February 1, 1953, the city was living as an independent city district from the district Fürstenberg extracted and on May 7, 1953 on the occasion of the death of Stalin in Stalin city renamed. Originally, on the 70th anniversary of Karl Marx's death, the city was to be given the name Karl-Marx-Stadt , which was then given to Chemnitz instead . At the end of 1953 the city had 2,400 inhabitants, in 1960 it had already 24,372. Fürstenberg (Oder) became a district town in 1952 and in 1960 had a population of 6,749.

On November 13, 1961, the cities of Fürstenberg (Oder) (with the Schönfließ district ) and Stalinstadt were merged to form Eisenhüttenstadt in order to erase the name that had become undesirable as part of the de-Stalinization . The city of Fürstenberg (Oder) was separated from the Fürstenberg district and added to the city already existing under the name Stalinstadt. Until the formation of the Oder-Spree district, Eisenhüttenstadt was both an independent city and a district town in the Eisenhüttenstadt district in the Frankfurt (Oder) district .

On September 19, 1986, an agreement on the first German-German town twinning between Saarlouis and Eisenhüttenstadt was signed with great political participation in the Federal Republic .

With the expansion of the iron and steel works, the number of inhabitants rose to an all-time high of over 53,000 by 1988. In 1993 the village of Diehlo was incorporated. In 1996 the new dyke bridge was rebuilt over the Oder-Spree Canal. With the structural change after reunification , the population almost halved. In order to cope with the shrinkage process, an urban redevelopment program has been started, which involves the demolition and renovation of numerous apartments.

Place name

iron and steel works, 1960

The somewhat cumbersome name of the city has always encouraged people to create more catchy names. In colloquial language, the city is often shortened to "Hüttenstadt" or "Hütte". Due to the decline since 1989, the city is now popularly known as "Schrottgorod". Scrap corrupted the iron as a material to be recycled, the ending -gorod the Russian ending for -stadt.


The community of Diehlo became part of Eisenhüttenstadt in 1993.

Church institutions

Nikolaikirche in Fürstenberg, 2019

The Evangelical Peace Community Eisenhüttenstadt initially used a room in a restaurant for services in Schönfließ. In the Neustadt there was initially a so-called gospel car, now a tent and from 1952 a barracks. For the planned housing estates, at that time as Stalin City , were part of Walter Ulbricht no church institutions and in particular no steeples provided. Today's Protestant church building and community center in Neustadt was built after 1976 and goes back to the long-term commitment of Pastor Heinz Bräuer, who later became an honorary citizen .

In the district of Fürstenberg, the Nikolaikirche, which was badly damaged during the war, was provisionally built and thoroughly renovated after the fall of the Wall. The New Apostolic congregation in Eisenhüttenstadt has a church in the Fürstenberg district.
