UNIMA Estonia has to announce about a great loss that affects not only the Danich UNIMA, but also UNIMA Estonia. On April 17th the former President of UNIMA Denmark and UNIMA Councillor died at the age of 73 in Tallinn.

UNIMA Estonia has had long term connections and collaboration with Hans since the Festival of the Baltic Sea Puppet Theatres in Silkeborg in 1996. The meetings with the President of UNIMA Sirppa Sivori-Asp and the presidents of the UNIMA Centres of the Nordic countries was the starting point of UNIMA Estonia. Among the others it was Hans Hartvich-Madsen to whom we are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the 20th anniversary of UNIMA Estonia last autumn.
