In Luther dedicated his book On the Freedom of a Christian Man to his friend, the mayor of Zwickau, Hermann Mühlpfort.

This makes Zwickau the only large city in Saxony that belonged to the Electorate without interruption until the end of the Holy Roman Empire in The Elector of Saxony Office Zwickau was since part of from the large Meissen district leached Erzgebirgische circle.
Due to its convenient location, the city became an administrative center of the Ore Mountains. The following Zwickau quote has come down to us from Luther's friend and companion Melanchthon , one of the great humanists of modern times:. In terms of art and science, Zwickau surpasses all cities in this country. In the Thirty Years War Zwickau was besieged nine times. Wallenstein , General of the Imperial Troops , demanded contributions from the city in the form of goods and money.

The war charges totaled , thalers. During the Seven Years' War — , Zwickau was exposed to changing occupations by Prussians , Austrians and the Imperial Army.

In the middle of the 19th century the city walls were torn down and the moat was filled. Roads were laid on the filled moat. On October 11, , the locksmith Fritz Tittmann founded the first local NSDAP group outside of Bavaria in Zwickau.
In the Third Reich , Zwickau was also granted honorary citizenship to high-ranking National Socialist politicians. In the Nazi era , before , the Grabenwege were combined into a city ring surrounding the city center and renamed the Adolf-Hitler-Ring. In Castle Osterstein one was from to temporary concentration camp set up. Up to people were imprisoned here, mainly social democratic and communist critics of the regime. The first secretary of the KPD sub-district leadership, Martin Hoop , was murdered here on the night of May 10th, In the three Auto Union plants Horch main plant, Dorotheenstrasse plant and Audi plant , a subcamp of the Flossenbürg concentration camp was set up for the production of military vehicles for around 3, forced laborers.

In the air raids in World War II , in contrast to other major Saxon cities such as Leipzig and Dresden , Zwickau was not badly destroyed by area bombing.
After deliberate attacks on armament factories and transport facilities such as aircraft repair Gustav Basser KG on the airfield Zwickau at the Reichenbach road 12 May and the Reichsbahn - repair shop in October, and the Auto-Union-Werke Horch and Audi 7, , the city center was only a direct destination on March 19, The south side of St.
Mary's Church "Zwickau Cathedral" and surrounding residential buildings were damaged by the explosion of an aerial mine.
Significantly damaged historic buildings in the city center were demolished after the war. The air raid policeman Arno Rau saved Zwickau from the planned total destruction by hoisting the white flag on the tower of St. Mary's Church in the evening hours of April 17, and causing the church bells to ring. Thereupon the planes turned and units of the US Army advanced to the Zwickau Mulde without a fight.
The city center on the western bank of the Mulden was occupied by the 3rd US Army on April 17, It was forbidden to cross the hollow. There was sharp shooting here. Resourceful citizens used the underground paths of the coal pits to get from the east to the west of the city. After the agreements of the Yalta Conference , the entire Zwickau district was finally incorporated into the Soviet zone of occupation.
The 3rd US Army withdrew its armed forces from West Saxony to Bavaria and from July 1, Zwickau was occupied by the Red Army. As part of the uranium mining of SAG Wismut for Soviet nuclear weapons development, which began in the Western Ore Mountains in , Zwickau became an important processing and supply center for this branch of industry.
The former Adolf-Hitler-Ring was named Dr. On 25 July , the city came under the county reforms in the GDR to the district Karl-Marx-Stadt until 9 May , and from 1 June District Chemnitz. The then district of Zwickau was dissolved and divided into the districts of Auerbach , Reichenbach , Schmölln , Stollberg , Werdau and Zwickau-Land main part. In the square in front of the Gewandhaus, the water was so high that about two thirds of the building's ground floor windows were covered by water.
In Zwickau was hit by a serious mine accident. Hard coal was mined for the last time in The central pioneer holiday camp " Karl Liebknecht " was built and operated as a tent city on the Windberg near Zwickau. With the reunification of Germany and the accession of the GDR to the Federal Republic of Germany on October 3, , Zwickau again belongs to the state of Saxony.
When the district reform law came into force in Saxony on August 1, , the two previous districts of Werdau and Zwickau were combined to form the district of Zwickauer Land. District seat was Werdau. The city of Zwickau still retained its status as an independent city. As part of the Saxon district reform on August 1, , the city's district freedom was withdrawn.
Zwickau received the rank of a large district town and became the administrative seat of the now much enlarged, newly founded district of Zwickau , which was formed from the independent city of Zwickau and the former districts of Chemnitzer Land and Zwickauer Land.
On November 4, , shortly after 3 p. As it turned out later, Uwe Böhnhardt , Uwe Mundlos and Beate Zschäpe , right- wing terrorists of the National Socialist Underground , had been hiding in this house for several years.
After the police investigation, Beate Zschäpe triggered the explosion when the media reported that the two accomplices had died in Eisenach. The house was demolished half a year after the explosion. A memorial for the ten NSU victims in the form of ten trees and associated memorial plaques has existed since November 3, , after a first tree planted on September 8, was sawed off by strangers just a few weeks later.
After the inner-German border was opened in autumn , Zwickau suffered a sharp decline in the number of inhabitants. An eleven-story high-rise for the employment agency on Leipziger Strasse was therefore completely oversized for this purpose from the start. After the historic Wilhelminian-style building of the cotton spinning mill in Zwickau-Pölbitz was restored with private investment funds in , the employment agency moved here.
The initial departure of young, well-educated people due to the threat of unemployment was also related to the closure of five large Zwickau companies after In addition, the city could not escape the general negative demographic trend; in the new federal states the number of newborns fell dramatically after Another reason for the population decline was increasing suburbanization. Many residents of Zwickau have moved into their own homes on the outskirts of the city since reunification.
Similar to other large cities in Germany, Zwickau is now surrounded by a so-called " bacon belt ". The district of Zwickau still has by far the highest population density of all Saxon districts. The process has recently been slowed down considerably through investments in jobs, in day-care centers, in urban redevelopment and the renovation of historic buildings.
According to information from the municipal statistics office on the migration movement of the Zwickau population, this already reached a balanced balance in In the Middle Ages, the city was headed by a margrave or royal bailiff. Evidently there was a council since This was later solely responsible in the city administration. The chairman of the council was the mayor, who changed annually on Michaelmas 29 September.
Both took turns in office. In the 15th century, Zwickau achieved great economic importance in the electorate due to the great mountain chatter.
The Zwickau patrician Martin Römer was the first governor of the elector's finance minister. The city received the coin and customs shelf as a special electoral privilege. Even today there is a coin street and a customs house in the city. The economic importance of the Saxon electorate is reflected, for example, in the text of the Hymn of Württemberg.
The mayors continued to change annually until , but were able to exercise this office several times. Lothar Streit , mayor since , became the first lord mayor of Zwickau in There was also a council. With the first Saxon administrative reform in , the Zwickau district administration was founded. Four district headquarters emerged from the district headquarters, including the district headquarters in Zwickau.
In the Zwickau district main team was finally divided into approximately two equal parts. The Chemnitz District Headquarters emerged from the eastern part. In Zwickau became an independent city. Although new parties emerged, the bourgeois parties retained a strong base. Inflation and the global economic crisis weighed heavily on the city.
Nonetheless, forward-looking projects were initiated, such as the construction of a new hospital under Professor Heinrich Braun or the planning for the new main train station by building officer Otto Falk. After the seizure of power of the NSDAP since governing mayor remained Richard Wood until at the office, then was Ewald Dost NSDAP to the entry of American troops Zwickau mayor.
In , the Saxon district chiefs were renamed administrative districts. Zwickau has been the seat of the administrative district of the same name since Since then, the administrative authorities have been called rural districts and the urban districts became urban districts. Between and , the Auto Union racing cars from the racing department of the Horch-Werke attracted international attention. The plans for urban development took into account the rapid growth of the city, which was over after the Second World War.
The Second World War ended in Zwickau with the surrender of the city to US troops on April 17, without a fight. Shortly after the war committed mayor Dost in American internment suicide. On July 1, , the Red Army took over the city.
In the early years after the war, the majority of the representatives elected by the city's residents were from the bourgeois parties. In the military administration set up district administrations. The first edition of the daily newspaper "Freie Presse" appeared on May 20, The newspaper was the central organ of the SED in the Zwickau district of southwest Saxony.
With the SMAD order of October 19, , so-called district denazification commissions were formed, to which city councils from the parties and representatives of social organizations belonged. With order 64 of April 17, , the Soviet military administration ordered the end of the sequestrations and ordered that property that had already been confiscated should be returned to those who had not been incriminated.
After the founding of the GDR on October 7, , the Free State of Saxony was divided into three districts in and the new large district Karl-Marx-Stadt was formed. With this, the city lost its historical status as a district town, which had grown over the centuries. When the Free State of Saxony was re-established in with the establishment of the unity of Germany , the city did not regain its historical status as a district town, but initially remained independent. It was not until the district reform in that the city also lost its district freedom.
The then CDU Mayor Dietmar Vettermann declared in a letter to Chancellor Angela Merkel that he was leaving the party in protest against this development. Since then, the city has been ruled by the SPD and is the administrative seat of the Zwickau district. Since , the mayor has been elected by the city's citizens directly from among the city council's candidates. The mayor's term of office electoral period is seven years.
The Lord Mayor is also the chairman of the city council. There are two deputies at your side. The years after the names indicate the years of office, whereby the year of office did not correspond to the calendar year. There are two variants of the Zwickau coat of arms, also known as the swan coat of arms. The small coat of arms is used as an official seal. The lushly landscaped so-called "Big coat of arms" or "Des Council a whole" was The red and white colors and the design of the coat of arms with gold and silver represent the first rank among the towns of Saxony as a result of the "Great Berggeschreys " in 15 Century.
Red symbolizes the imperial red seal privilege that Zwickau was granted in by Emperor Friedrich III. No other city than Zwickau was allowed to have two helmets in the coat of arms in the Electorate of Saxony. For large coat of arms belonging to the Saints Mauritius , which is already in mentioned as the patron of the parish church.
The seven flags symbolize the seven electoral principalities of the Holy Roman Empire — The swan's coat of arms is proven at the beginning of the 15th century. The grave slabs of the Zwickau councilors, who were executed after the blood judgment of and were buried in the cloister of the St. Afra monastery in Meissen, already bear the coat of arms.
The picture shows the simple execution of the great coat of arms. The pompous form of the great coat of arms is above the portal of the town hall on the main market.
Blazon : The large coat of arms on the town hall has a square shield with a gold shield dividing cross and a gold shield border.
In the fields at the top left and diagonally at the bottom right, three two to one striding white swans on a red background; in the fields at the top right and diagonally at the bottom left over blue waves the city wall with three different silver towers. Both helmets have a gold visor. Saint Mauritius forms the crest of the left helmet. On the right helmet, the electoral hat with seven white and red flags serves as a crest.
One swan each on the left and right are provided as a shield holder in the red and silver decorative ribbons. The swan in the middle below the shield bears the decorative ribbon in which the dates and are written.
Zwickau's twin cities are:. The inhabitants of Zwickau were predominantly Protestant for many centuries. The majority of the Zwickau residents have been non-denominational since the GDR era. On 31 October came to the theses of Martin Luther at the Castle Church in Wittenberg. Evangelical sermons were held in Zwickau as early as The cloth weaver Nikolaus Storch , the cloth maker Thomas Drechsel and the student from Wittenberg Markus Stübner are considered the Zwickau prophets.
From the population of Zwickau learned from them that the sacraments of the church were useless. They advocated the thesis that every person has an inner light in their hearts, whereby godlessness will end and the kingdom of peace will come.
After all, what counts is acting according to Jesus' message and not just believing. The mayor of Zwickau, Hermann Mühlpfort, and the pastor of St. Mary's Church, Nikolaus Hausmann, oppose the prophetic popular movement that was sparked by the Zwickau prophets. Martin Luther also stands on the side of the authorities and fights for the introduction of an official church.
He takes a stand against the Zwickau prophets and tries to dissolve the popular movement. On April 8, , Luther stayed with Mayor Mühlpfort. On May 1st, 14, people from Zwickau and the surrounding area gather in front of the Zwickau town hall. The Zwickau market square became the scene of an intellectual debate. Luther evidently did not succeed in getting the majority of the people on his side. In contrast to Luther, Thomas Müntzer , pastor of St. Catherine's Church in Zwickau, stood behind the early Christian ideals of the prophetic popular movement.
In the Lord's Supper was given in Zwickau "in both forms". After the failure of the Zwickau prophets, Thomas Müntzer's thinking became radicalized.
