More about the History of Kröv
The placename derives from the original Gallo-Romance croviacum, which later became a Merovingian kingly estate. The municipality’s first documentary mention came under the Carolingian king Lothair II in 862. Kröv was part of the Kröver Reich (a kingly estate named for Kröv). The village belonged until 1815 to the Département de la Sarre, and after Napoleon’s final defeat, to Prussia. Since 1947, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The Nazi and Hitler Youth leader Baldur von Schirach withdrew to Kröv after his release from prison in 1966, dying and being buried here several years later (1974). Schirach’s gravestone at the Kröv graveyard bears the epitaph “Ich war einer von euch” – “I was one of you”.
