In the year 1900 the author Clara Viebig had a literary breakthrough with her novel "Das Weiberdorf". The novel described the situation of the village Eifelschmitt around the turn of the century. Since the middle age Eifelschmitt have been an important point for the iron forging, but it lost its importance with the industrialisation. So the males of the village moved into the bigger citys around the Ruhrgebiet to work in the steelworks. Just two times in the year they returned back for a few days. As a consequence the village was just inhabited by the women, the pastor and the village idiot...

For more information you can read the short reviews or the whole novel. All in all Clara Viebig created the image of the typical Eifel people, which had persisted in Germany for many centuries... of a bit lazy and silly people. Of course it was not her intention, but Eifelschmitt has become THE EXAMPLE of a village in the Eifel, which is - like your discover - the so called EISENSCHMITT.
