Marriage Contract of Emile Mayrisch and Aline de Saint-Hubert (13.09.1894 – Notary Pierre BRASSEUR, Eich)
In September 1894, the young Aline de Saint-Hubert, daughter of Xavier de Saint-Hubert, married the engineer Emile Mayrisch, the future boss of the combined steelworks of Burbach-Eich-Dudelange (Arbed). The young couple settled in the Kräizbierg villa, near the Dudelange factory, of which Emile Mayrisch became director in 1897. Twenty years later, the Mayrisch-Saint-Hubert couple acquired the Colpach estate with its castle. By welcoming Belgian, French and German intellectuals, Colpach reflected the humanist and conciliatory, even European, spirit of the couple, while giving birth to the Franco-German Committee for Information and Documentation, known as the Mayrisch Committee, whose aim was to bring France and Germany closer together after the horrors of the Great War.
