We mourn the loss of our former colleague Michael Baldzikowski, who was in the English Department at the Viadrina Language Center from 1993 to 2021. Michael actively shaped and decisively influenced the development of the Language Center since its early days in the 1990s.

The team of Language Center has lost an extremely valued colleague, friend, and popular language teacher. Our thoughts are with Michael’s family at this time, and we extend our sincere condolences to them.
