Juergen had great knowledge, sharp wit and great sense of humour. No trick would pass him either. He always wanted to learn something new everyday and therefore planned his day so it would not be wasted. He fought very hard for what he believed in and enjoyed being challenged. He loved the flowers, the sunshine and the laughter of people around him. The moments spent with him were always very intense and full of life and very interesting. These moments with Jurgen will never be forgotten.
I've been a cameraman/film-maker for 50-years. I had the honour and good fortune to know and work closely with Juergen for about 30 of them. And if anybody were to ask me which journalist I worked with that most impressed me for his integrity, I would say without hesitation, I respected Juergen Corleis, most of all.
