Activities - Press Releases

Dear friends,

It was with deepest sorrow and grief that we learnt of the passing of Hildegard Hilly Kessler, a prominent German intellectual and a great friend of Serbia and the Serbian people. We will always cherish her persistent, noble and humane efforts that Professor Kessler, our own Hilly, invested as her selfless and precious aid to Serbia and the Serbian nation during this most challenging period of the contemporary Serbian history.

We treasure her support and assistance to the Serbian people during NATO aggression against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Both by humanitarian and public political undertakings, she courageously stood up in defense of truth and freedom, and denounced this aggression as a crime against peace and humanity.

We will keep remembering Hilly as a brave and intrepid soldier of peace, one who has always known true values of morality, equality, and freedom.

Her selfless contribution has always proved to be generous and well-timed.

Hilly will forever remain a paragon of altruism, nobility and humanity.

The Belgrade Forum has lost a true friend and associate, and will always hold dear the memory of her huge compassionate heart.

Živadin Jovanović
