‘In the small Saxon town of Niesky, 20 minutes by train from Görlitz, the then largest European timber construction company “Christoph & Unmack AG” (C&U) built four factory and model settlements in timber construction with a total of 317 apartments in 114 houses. Of these, around 100 model houses with more than 250 apartments have been well preserved as settlements to this day, most of which are in their original condition and most of which are listed buildings. They were realized between 1918 and 1940.’
