Saint Louis, April 6, 2020

Dear colleagues and clients

The City of Saint-Louis has informed us that the mayor of the City of Saint-Louis, Jean-Marie Zoellé, died on Monday April 4 at the St. Petrus Hospital in Bonn. He had been transferred to Bonn from the Mulhouse hospital after having suffered an respiratory insufficiency due to Covid-19.

Jean-Marie Zoelle has always accompanied and supported our research institute as a brand of his town. He has been a keen defender of the European cooperation and the strong French-German collaboration. We will always remember him and we address our most sincere condolences to his family.
