Synopsis

The history of the Leipzig Fair goes back to the Middle Ages, and the first post-war fair, also called the "Peace Fair," took place in 1946. The still Soviet-occupied zone tried to demonstrate the return of economic growth one year after the war. Exhibitors from the other occupied zones participated, and the Soviet Union was the only international exhibitor.
