Säter is a small town where trade, industry and communications were developed slowly. The new ideas about a better society began to form – pro education, sobriety and equality. The hospital was built and became the largest workplace when it opened. The great war in Europe has led to gruesome conditions with a shortage of food and supplies leading to hunger riots. The city struggled with poor hygiene and initiated the instalment of water pipes and hospitals to treat the Spanish flu and diphtheria to ameliorate the citizens’ health status.
You will walk, sing and dance with us as we embark on our historic adventure. Limited number of tickets. Tickets must be bought in advance at the Library.
