Статья не хвалебная, но очень реалистичная. И как нельзя лучше показывает, что проект Death Cafe нужен и важен для людей.

Mit dem Tod bei Kaffee und Kuchen

Lovely article (in German) in our local newspaper, Oberösterreichische Nachrichten, in Upper Austria last weekend. The journalist Roswitha Fitzinger initially just wanted to observe, but ended up becoming an enthusiastic participant.

Many thanks to Roswitha Fitzinger for this article, and also to Norbert Trawöger from Kepler Salon for his support for the Linz Death Cafe - Mit dem Tod bei Kaffee und Kuchen.
