In Memoriam
HANS HACK
28 June 1938 – 19 June 2022

We join the family and friends of Dr. Hans Hack in mourning his passing away on 19 June 2022.

Dr. Hack and his brother Fritz are great grandsons of Pastor Karl Ullmer, the Protestant pastor who befriended and hosted Jose Rizal during his stay in Wilhelmsfeld, Germany in 1886.

They spearheaded the donation of archival documents related to Jose Rizal to the National Library of the Philippines during their visit to the country in 1961. More recently, they donated the bed and desk used by Rizal to the National Historical Commission of the Philippines which are permanently exhibited at the NHCP Museo ni Jose Rizal Fort Santiago.
