In 1961, Erdős, Ginzburg and Ziv proved a remarkable theorem stating that each set of 2n−1 integers contains a subset of size n, the sum of whose elements is divisible by n. We will prove a similar result for pairs of integers, i.e. planar lattice-points, usually referred to as Kemnitz’ conjecture.

Dedicated to Richard Askey on the occasion of his 70th birthday.
