With great sadness that the Management Board and members of the BPP learn the news of the sudden death of their longtime member Jürgen W. Glaeser from Hagen. Glaeser was the initiator of the “Group of Experts in the BPP,” for many years their spokesman. As a renowned Philatelist Glaeser had gained an excellent reputation in the industry, in addition, he was a dedicated local politician, who until 2014 worked as a district mayor in his hometown of Hagen. Jürgen Glaeser was 74 years old. We bow down in front of a grand, upright man, whom we will miss. Our sympathy in this difficult time is part of his family.
