Dear all

With immense sorrow, we inform you that Petra Gekeler passed away this weekend.

Our long-time Director and colleague succumbed to severe cancer after an extended and tireless struggle. She fought to the end and never lost courage.
Her thoughts were always with the Language Center and her work; despite her increasing ailments she actively participated in everything.Though her death saddens us incredibly, we are grateful that she has been released from her suffering.

In silent mourning
