note:

The details aren't fixed yet. Especially the exact hours/ times of the addresses may vary.

The addresses will all be held in English.
The open-hearing about the memorial in Buk's house-of-birth will be in German, (but English speakers are invited to ask questions at it, which I will try to answer as good as possible then).
The evening-program will be in German.

If you'd like to attend as guests, we ask for registration to get things organized. (however, "registration" means nothing more than just telling me, you will come - and Do so.)

I'll be more than happy to help anybody with locating Andernach on the map and booking a hotel there.

Any questions?
