100 years after the founding of Schule Schloss Salem by Prince Max of Baden and Kurt Hahn a richly illustrated Festschrift has been issued in April 2020. It does not attempt to provide a seamless history of Salem. Instead the twenty-four authors cast light on the fabled boarding school community by focussing upon selected events, developments and illustrious individuals. Social and pedagogical challenges as well as competing sets of values become just as impressively evident as the continuity and contradictions found in the implementation of the continually developing ideas on how to conduct classroom instruction and organise daily life in the boarding school.
