The Commission would like to thank you all, both fellows and friends of the program, who expressed feelings and sympathy for the victims of the terrible attack on Monday. The Christmas market at the Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church is known to every visitor to Berlin, and very close to our office. To those concerned about the well-being of the Fulbright community: all current fellows and their families are reported back safe and sound. May this most recent crime strengthen our commitment to mutual understanding and peaceful cooperation among all people. Best wishes, courage, and atonement in the days ahead of us.
Dr. Oliver Schmidt, Executive Director
