Ab dem 22.9. empfangen wir wieder eine Gruppe von insgesamt zehn amerikanischen Veteranen. Wie in den vergangenen Jahren planen in der Woche ihres Berlinaufenthaltes den Besuch von weiterführenden Schulen. Hier erzählen die Gäste (jede Gruppe besteht aus 3 bzw. 4 Personen) von ihrer Zeit in Berlin - alle waren irgendwann zwischen 1945 und 1994 in unserer Stadt stationiert. Leider ist uns eine Schule kurzfristig abgesprungen und wir suchen für Mittwoch, 26. September für die Zeit von ca. 9-12 Uhr Ersatz. Es geht um eine Diskussionsrunde (in englischer Sprache) in den Klassenstufen 9 und höher. Wer kann uns helfen? Bitte melden Sie sich unter info@cc-stifung.de oder telefonisch. Vielen Dank für jegliche Unterstützung.

Today is a day that the whole world remembers. Our thoughts are with the families who were affected in many different ways by the attacks of September 11th seventeen years ago.
We as the Checkpoint Charlie Foundation are pleased that, with the support of hundreds of donors who responded to our charity campaign in the fall of 2001, we have been able to assist a special group of victims of these attacks.
As you probably know, the foundation provides scholarships to the children of New York firefighters who were forced to take early retirement due to illnesses acquired during search and rescue and clean-up operations on September 11th and subsequent days and weeks.
Since 2005, the foundation has distributed a total of $617,932.00 to 40 children of these unsung heroes of September 11th, enabling them to attend college or university. Of these, 23 have now earned their degrees.
We are thankful that we have been able to provide some aid and solace to help these families endure this terrible tragedy. And we remember.
A big thank you goes to the Friends of Firefighters for all the good cooperation work and also to the Family Assistant Unit at FDNY.

At the end of August we've had to say good by to our long term colleague and Program-Manager James Griffin😥. He found a new position at the American Embassy in Berlin. Thank you James for all your work and good luck for your future!
His successor we will introduce next week.
