The third congress of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (July 20-24, 1950) decided to erect a steel mill, the Eisenhüttenkombinat Ost, and an adjacent residential city. Construction began on August 8, 1950. The first blast furnace was put into operation one year later. The residential city was given the name Stalinstadt in honor of Joseph Stalin on 7 May 1953.
After the foundation of Eisenhüttenstadt in 1950, the population rose from 2,400 in 1953 to 38,138 in 1965 to the historical high of 53,048 in 1988. Since German reunification in 1990, the population of Eisenhüttenstadt has continuously fallen (34,818 in 2005). It is expected that the population will be around 32,000 in 2015. But in a recent study from the 2008 population has decreased to 32,214






Russia is withdrawing from Germany in 1992 destroyed the steel mill. You can see traces of the missiles.
