I just heard the sad news about Christa.

I am speechless and there are no words to express how she will be missed.

At the same time, Christa leaves a wonderful and important legacy that I will cherish for as long as my professional life will last and that I will pass on to younger colleagues. In that way, Christa will continue to be among us, with her insights on how to build a curriculum with respect for diversity and many other issues.

I will also cherish the many moments, from the discussions while we had a smoke outside, to the many debates at meetings and conferences, but also the moments where we sang “Die Gedanke sind frei” with a beer in the evenings.
