As the costs of this project are already covered, we will soon be able to start with the measures. Behind all this, however, lies a sad occasion with a grand gesture: in September 2018, Uli Baur, co-founder and most recently also co-editor of the news magazine FOCUS, head of Christian Liebig and a great supporter of CLS, passed away. The fact that he remained committed to our mission beyond his death leaves us with deep gratitude.
The guests at his funeral service donated more than 7,000 euros to CLS at his request. But this gesture moved not only us: another donation of 6,500 euros reached us on the occasion of the 60th birthday of the owner of the Polting estate, Franz Baron Riederer von Paar. The balance, which completely covers the total costs of 40,000 euros, reached us as a major donation from the board of directors of Hubert Burda Media Holding.
