Essyas and reports in the Media

Departure from political naivety - "What does the future hold for our country? Are we destroying ourselves and, if so, where does this self-destruction come from? Could it be related to the fact that we have not really fundamentally changed in the depths of our soul since 1945, that we still blindly submit ourselves all to readily to state authorities and struggle with both freedom as well as rationality?"  (Jürgen Fritz Blog, 28. 1. 2018)

Without Soul no Life - (Note: If you click "I already support" you can read this article.

How can it come to a turning point?"  (Tichys Einblick, 25. 12. 2015)

Art on the way - "In 1998, when people in Germany were discussing the meaning and form of a central Holocaust memorial in Berlin as extensively as they were controversially, Zieringer came up with the idea that is now in the process of taking shape. In the spring, the Tree of Life is to emerge in the black gravel..."  (JÜDISCHE ALLGEMEINE,16. 12. 2010)
