Loki Schmidt passed in the night of Oct. 21st at the age of 91. The couple had been married since 1942. Helmut Schmidt is a long-term supporter of German debating, and in 2007 became the patron of the ZEIT-DEBATTEN-series, organized by the VDCH.

The VDCH board wrote on the VDCH website: “We wish Helmut Schmidt the energy to overcome his loss, and every possible support in this time of mourning.”

The DDG board wrote on the DDG website: “Our thoughts, our deep sympathy and our compassion are with chancellor Helmut Schmidt.”
