Christian Preußcher was a driving force behind the founding of the Elbe / Labe Euroregion and worked as its managing director on the German side from its founding in 1992 until he retired due to illness in 2014.
In this activity he has made an outstanding contribution to the development and intensification of diverse cross-border relationships between Saxony and the Czech Republic. On the other hand, as a convinced European, cooperation with other border regions and the growing together of Europe were important concerns to which he devoted himself wholeheartedly. It is fair to say that the Elbe / Labe Euroregion and probably also the Saxon-Czech relations would not be at the level they have achieved today without him.
We mourn the loss of this founding father of the Saxon-Czech euroregional cooperation and hereby express our condolences to his relatives.
