In the little, rustic village of Sessenheim, France, the history is easy to miss. Sessenheim, population 1,500, is a rather plain-looking town with a couple of old churches and not much else at first glimpse. But it was here where the granddaddy of German literature — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe — became enthralled with the local pastor’s daughter.
And just up the road from Sessenheim sits Soufflenheim, a village renowned for the production of traditional Alsace pottery.
