Konrad Darm was a descendant of (almost exclusively) Huguenots, who during the 16th and 17th century fled from France, mainly from the areas near the German borders. Some of these regions initially had belonged to the Holy Roman Empire and then been conquered or acquired by France before persecution started. As religious refugees they found shelter in Germany, in this case in the County of Saarbrücken, where they founded and built a new village near the border, Ludweiler (today part of Völklingen in the federal land of Saarland).


 
Thanks to the “

Heimatkundlicher Verein Ludweiler-Warndt

” (Society for Local History of Ludweiler and the the Warndt Area), their  chairman

Karl- Werner Desgranges

, and the genealogist

Heinz Lavall

we know about a remarkable number of ancestors, partly going far back into the 17th and 16th century, periods when many of them still lived in France, not only in Lorraine, but also in a number of other regions like, for example, Savoie.

Right: The Hugenots church in Ludweiler was built in 1785 by Balthasar Wilhelm Stengel at the location of three predecessor buildings of 1604, 1660 and 1720. It is a Baroque church but in the non -ornamental style of the Reformist church.
