Forged letter: Confusion about Schoduvel’s rejection | – Nachrichten – Lower Saxony

Status: 03.01.2022 1:20 p.m.

After the Braunschweig Carnival Committee canceled the Schoduvel because of an – alleged – letter from the city, it is now clear: the letter is a forgery. The carnival is canceled anyway.

“The letter is forged, it is not a letter from the city of Braunschweig,” the administration clarified on Monday and announced a criminal complaint against unknown persons. Mayor Thorsten Kornblum (SPD) also distanced himself from the style and linguistic gesture of the letter. Zugmarschall Gerhard Baller from the Braunschweig Carnival Committee canceled the carnival procession and the hall carnival on Sunday. Baller said on Monday that he had the corresponding letter in the mail on New Year’s Eve.

Regardless of misspelling: no schoduvel

“The rejection remains despite the forgery,” said the train marshal. Due to the dynamic pandemic, the further development cannot be foreseen at the moment, the city also said on Monday.

Carnivalists disappointed, but hope for 2023

Many fools are disappointed because of the cancellation, Baller described on Sunday to the NDR in Lower Saxony. The first preparations had already started in March of last year. Many new cars have been built or repaired, some are about to be completed. But the work is not in vain, stressed Baller. The carnivalists now focused on preparing the Schoduvel in 2023.

Dammer Carneval and Easter Saturday already canceled

With a length of more than six kilometers and sometimes more than 200,000 spectators on the streets, the Schoduvel is the largest carnival parade in northern Germany. As early as November, the Dammer Carneval in the Vechta district was the first major move in Lower Saxony to be canceled due to the corona pandemic. The Easter Saturday in Osnabrück has also been canceled for the year 2022.
