Our Educational Early Learning Cards are all given names related to rivers around the World. The names chosen have been picked at random from a list of major waterways with short names. There is no relationship between the names of the rivers associated with any set of cards. We also prepare and sell bookcraft kits, and for these we have chosen the names of ~ historical ~ famous explorers and discoverers.
The mathematical series of cards is named after the river Elbe, which flows from east to west across northern Germany into the North Sea at Cuxhaven ~ after rising in the Czech Republic. Continuing this policy of naming cards in a seemingly random way we have used the names of towns and cities on the apppropriate rivers to denote various subsets of the main group of cards. Hence ~ Wittenberg ~ along with Dresden ~ Meissen ~ Hamburg ~ and others.
Wittenberg was known to me ~ after a brief mention in schoolday history lessons ~ as the city associated with Martin Luther ~ who nailed a protesting set of messages to the cathedral door ~ the start of the Protestant Reformation. There is a great deal about all this on the WWW to which readers are referred for more information.
