Glasgow Meets Chemnitz – part 2

Then we went to the industrial museum and I told them a little bit about Chemnitz and its history after the war and about life in the GDR and what has changed since the Reunification. The exhibition was good for understanding as Mrs. and Mr. Winter could get an impression of the life and events of this time. And the part about the industrial history of Chemnitz was also very interesting; I always learn something new when I'm there. After a small ...[mehr]

Yesterday and today we had a training. We practice our behaviour in different situations as well as with different characters of the persons we accompany. I like to focus on other people. All of them do have their own biography and are characterized differently. I will be a reliable partner for everybody. That’s my task and I like it very much. Well, during the training I found it a bit difficult to put myself in the situations and I acted like ...[mehr]

Easter Holiday

Hi there, hope you had a nice Easter :-). I stayed at home just as every year. My parents have a big house with a garden where we all got together – my brother and his family and my cousin with her child. We were already looking for the Easter eggs before afternoon coffee. Miriam was very curious and nervous, and Konstantin wanted to pet the Easter bunny. Unfortunately, it had already scampered by, but he wasn’t satisfied with that. After a ...[mehr]

Hi there. Yesterday evening I went to a gospel concert. First I visited the foundation event of the demography network of Chemnitz and then I went directly to the Markus church. It was a great atmosphere, singing along, applauding and swinging. I had a lot of fun. And I had goosebumps again and again due to the phenomenal voices. That was really incredible. The a cappella songs were the most impressive because of the atmosphere in the church. ...[mehr]

Hi there. Today I went skiing. I packed the cross-country skis and the equipment at the back seat of my car and drove to Geyer in the Ore Mountains. There was a lot of snow fallen last night but especially in the forest the cross-country ski rails were well prepared. It was great. Indeed the sun wasn’t shining but it wasn’t cold and only a few people around. I met two blind skiers and their attendants. I said hello and they immediately joked ...[mehr]

Interview with a Surprise

Hi there. Yesterday I had a great appointment. I was invited by Mr. Volkert, the managing director of a medium-sized company here in Chemnitz, in order to tell him about us and what we do at BASS. I got to know Mr. Volkert a few days ago at an event organised by the BVMW and he told me that he would like to know more about us. There I was with him in his office, which is by the way a very modern, friendly and open one, just like his company. ...[mehr]

Best Wishes to Japan

Hi there. I already told you recently of the Japanese group I accompanied to the “Hygiene Museum” in Dresden. Well, it took a load off my mind when I was on the phone with the institute and I got to know that they are still staying in Europe. It is very shocking what’s currently happening to their fellow countrymen - first the seaquake, than the tsunami and now the nuclear disaster. These are the moments I’m wishing a lot of strength to the ...[mehr]
