My relationship with my host Alfred Fettweis was a special one. A true citizen of the world, he believed in the importance of international collaboration, hosting 15 Humboldt fellowship and award recipients and countless other researchers during his long career. No matter what part of the world his visitors were from, he always made an effort to understand their culture and make them feel welcome. A giant in his field, his life ended in 2015 but his legacy will live on through the many lives he touched around the world.
