Diese Führung war in jeder Hinsicht eine tolle Erfahrung. Mit großer Professionalität im persönlichen Erscheinungsbild, Erzählstil, Umgang mit den Teilnehmern und vor allem objektiven Betrachten und viel fundiertes Wissen über diese Zeit hat Stefan mich überzeugt. Ich habe einiges mit neuen Augen betrachten und Sofias Geschichte in der kommunistischen Ära auf eine sehr spannende Weise kennengelernt.
