Our Sister City
In February 2020, Columbus City Council President Shannon Hardin and Columbus City Council Member Emmanuel Remy attended the City of Dresden’s Commemoration for the 75th Anniversary of Bombing of Dresden. The Mayor of Dresden, Dirk Hilbert, hosted representatives from all of Dresden’s sister cities. As part of the celebration, 11,000 local citizens came together to create a human chain in remembrance of the victims of the bombing.
Council President Hardin and Councilmember Remy also met with students of the Dresden Work-Based Student Exchange and Athlete Ambassadors from the Sister City Marathon Exchange.
