Dear friends in Riverside,
75 years ago, on April 16, 1945, Erlangen surrendered unconditionally and was liberated by American troops. Since then we have been living on peace and friendship with the American people.
From 1945 till 1991 the Ferris Barracks were loacted in our city. I am glad that former enemies are friendship links between our cities. The lesson learned is that even after such a terrible war
people can make peace. I wish you all good health in this difficult times of Coronc crisis and look forward to continue our exchange programs in Riverside as well as in Erlangen. Stay safe and take care
With my best wishes, yours
Mayor Florian Janik
