Vanished World 2023 Calendar For Free Download

2021 had been a difficult year for me and I hoped for a better 2022. The hope was in vain. On 24 February, Russia invaded Ukraine, a country where I have many friends, where I have travelled a lot and which I love. I had also planned a trip to Ukraine for spring 2022. It was not possible. Instead, I went to Lithuania twice to take photos for my book “Grenzland | Borderlands”, which will be published in early 2023. However, the trips to Lithuania were more than a substitute for Ukraine. The country looks back on an incredibly rich Jewish history. A selection of the photos taken during these trips can be seen in the new Vanished World calendar. May 2023 be better than 2022!

There are two versions of the calendar for download – a German and an English one. Both contain the essential Jewish and Christian holidays (according to the Gregorian calendar).

It is a calendar for 12 months with a cover sheet in A2 size and file features as expected by most print shops. It makes sense to read the data sheets of on-line print shops and to make changes if necessary.

Where To Print?

Copy shops and on-line print shops offer economic processing of digital prints. A recommendation for Germany and Europe is They print a calendar in A2 for about 10 euros. I am pleased when users share experiences with other print shops in your countries.


Download the German version via Dropbox (PDF, 1,7 GB)
Download the English version via Dropbox (PDF, 1,7 GB)

Be patient. These are big files in high resolution print quality and they need time to download. Try again if Dropbox is over capacity. You do not need to register to Dropbox to download the files. Mind the download button, do not use the file preview to download.

I wish you a great 2023!

  1. Wieder mal fantastische Fotos!

    Ich war diesen Sommer (2022) in der Ukraine, und man kann durchaus reisen. Allerdings war ich “nur” in der Karpatenukraine, weit weg von allen Kampfhandlungen:

    Aber wenn man die Ukraine von früher kennt, so wie Sie sehr gut oder wie ich nur ein klein wenig, dann ist es natürlich nicht das Gleiche. Man spürt die bedrückte Stimmung, die Straßen sind leerer. Und auch ganz praktisch ist es schwieriger, zB mit dem Transport, weil weit weniger Busse oder Züge als vorher fahren.

    Also, es ist nicht wahnsinnig gefährlich oder gar unmöglich, aber bei ausgedehnten Recherchereisen würde ich mich derzeit auch etwas fehl am Platz fühlen. So wie wenn man bei Wichtigerem im Weg steht.

    Aber Litauen ist ja auch faszinierend!
