2001: 9.11. A Day that Changes Everything
It is with a sense of apprehension and reflection, stemming from the terror attacks of September 11th, 2001, that Mund & Fester celebrates the 125th anniversary of its founding with a formal gathering at Hamburg’s Hotel “Four Seasons”.
290 colleagues of a partner-firm, Marsh & McLennan, had been murdered in the towers of the World Trade Center. Practically every one of the evening’s speakers and well-wishers feels moved, by the incomprehensible act of violence, to declare their solidarity with their foreign business partners: “We will not allow ourselves to be paralyzed or defeated. We must regroup and readjust to the new situation. We owe this to the helpless and innocent victims of 9/11.”
