This book presents the story of Obernai, the most remote times until the day of the press.
It shows the aspects of the past without neglecting the contemporary.
Obernai, a step essential for who wants to discover Alsace, did not yet have his portrait; like that of a person.
Choosing between the many facets of a city also charged with history and in full expansion, between subjects of equal importance and between hundreds of photos as beautiful and the others, was a difficult task.
Faced with our galloping civilization, its current human fabric, cosmopolitan, traditional and inventive, converted into a judicious asset.
Michel Vogt, author, was forced to make a selection in the mass of the information that had all deserved to appear in the book.
The layout proposes a reasonable chronology associated with a concern for aesthetics in the presentation.
The portrait of a city is necessarily reducer in a book ... by presenting the dynamic city of Obernai, its heritage and its actors in the most objective and most artistic way possible.
