In memoriam

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the death of our longtime colleague, Angela Greiner, on December 18th 2017.

For more than twenty years Angela worked at the Goethe-Institut Chicago as the coordinator for the cultural program. She was deeply involved in the cultural scene, and her knowledge and connections in the culture of the city were indispensable.

It was just a wonderful collaboration with the entire team and we are thankful for having been allowed to work with Angela Greiner.

Needless to say we will miss her more than words can express. She was not just our co-worker, but our friend as well.
