Cornelia Horsch

† 24 August 2019

"Being able to fall asleep when one is tired and being able to let off a weight that has been lugged for a long time, is a delight, a marvellous fact."
(Hermann Hesse)

We say goodbye to the long-time director of the IDZ, our always inspiring colleague and dear friend Cornelia Horsch. With her positive attitude to life, her humour and her unbridled energy, she has left a lasting impression on the IDZ.
