With this motion (NR.398) the City Council instructs the magistrate to erect a statue of Arthur von Weinberg in the area of the former Niederräder racecourse. Before being persecuted by the Nazis, Arthur von Weinberg was an active member of the Frankfurt city community and a generous benefactor of many projects. Due to his passion for equestrian sports, he had a special connection to the former racetrack in Niederrad.
Honouring Arthur von Weinberg
Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
