"After the Edict of Potsdam in 1685, Potsdam became a centre of European immigration. Its religious freedom attracted people from France (Huguenots), Russia, the Netherlands and Bohemia. The edict accelerated population growth and economic recovery."
Prussia needed/wanted these well educated migrants and wealthy families from other countries. I don't think the 'religious' freedom was 100% really. But it probably was enough freedom to go to Prussia. Like the Dutch! ---> "Dutch Quarter" :)

I also just started reading Tony Judt's "Europe after45" again. I started with the 60s back then so now I am reading the first chapter. And somehow I suddenly don't like Tony that much anymore. Can't name you the examples- but his writing style in that (first) chapter reminds me of the style that journalists use in the German "Spiegel" newspaper.
Hmm. I guess on the pro side it's not difficult to read. Just the general stuff for starters...
