Intentions

Project goals

The goals of our society.

There is one primary goal:

                           to support peace and international understanding.

That is why we bring people together worldwide who wish to honor Felix Count von Luckner as we do and to support thereby the international understanding and peace, things, Count von Luckner acted for during his whole life. He was world famous in the past but has not been forgotten now. We want to be the Society of friends of the Count and of those who are interested in his life and history.

A museum for the Count in Halle, Germany

A museum for Count von Luckner was opened in Halle; we met this goal, indeed.

Here you will find the Count-von-Luckner-Museum

During many years many treasures found their way to us and have been safely stored during that time. But time had come to show some of the items to the public. We installed a “small but fine” museum in Halle. You are welcome to visit us and see our collection. More information  >>> HERE <<<

But there shall be more things in that museum. In the 1920′s of the last century Count von Luckner in the 1920′s  traveled throughout the world on “Good-Will-Tours”. We’ve been contacted by people from around the world. Some me von Luckner personally. Some are children and grandchildren of people touched by him. We hope to locate many more. Some have memories, stories, papers, pictures, or other memorabilia. We want to collect as much information and material as we can. We seek as many details in his extraordinary life as possible.

If you have a von Luckner story to tell?  Please, let us know.

If you got to donate materials (copies would do!), everything would be highly appreciated.

To erect a memorial in Halle for Felix Count von Luckner.

In real still in the dark; but in our museum you already can see a draft of the memorial to honour the Count.

We intend to erect a memorial for Count von Luckner in Halle because in this town – in the town he helped to save from destruction! – there is no sign of honor at all.

At the moment there is just the idea and no specific design. It could be a statue or another kind of memorial.

We hope to establish an “internationally” orientated memorial considering that Count von Luckner was and is well known around the world.

He traveled throughout the world: to Tahiti, New Zealand, the United States of America and other countries. His wife was Swedish.

We hope to attract financial and non-financial support from the many people and places the Count touched.

Count von Luckner brought nations together or at least closer to each other by bringing people together.

It was an important part of his extraordinary life.

The memorial will honor his international reputation.

If you have any idea or wish to donate for the memorial, please let us know.
