He died there in 1900.

How did Annaberg look?

Larry just found this film, from 1938. By then, WWI was over, and WWII was brewing, but the vid gives you a good idea of the area and where the quarry was vis a vis the Church and Monastery.

This video shows the town of Annaberg now (2008)...he shows the church from a distance, then up close. It's a TALL church, built on top of a hill.
Impressive, huh?
