The RIAS BERLIN COMMISSION condoles the Hockeimer family on the death of Henry Hockeimer
We mourn the passing of one of the founding members of the RIAS BERLIN COMMISSION. Henry Hockeimer represented the United States of America in the negotiations, which led to the establishment of the RIAS BERLIN COMMISSION by the German-U.S. agreement on May 19, 1992.
During his following 20 years on the board of the RIAS Berlin Commission, Henry Hockeimer was always a strong advocate for the German-US exchange programs of the RIAS BERLIN COMMISSION. He never missed the chance to meet with the visiting German groups in Washington D.C. or in New York, always paying attention to the feedback of the participants and constantly trying to improve the already very successful RIAS program even further. We could always count on him as wonderful friend and great supporter. Henry will be very much missed, and will always be remembered by all who have been and still are part of the RIAS BERLIN COMMISSION. (Erik Bettermann, Chairman, on behalf of the RIAS BERLIN COMMISSION)
