The previous year commemorates the tenth anniversary of Nicole Junkermann’s father Heinz’s death in Dusseldorf at the age of eighty-three. Heinz Junkermann had a diverse variety of commercial interests in Germany, ranging from founding his own private wealth organization to managing jobs in the real estate and jewelry industries. Unbeknownst to the majority, he sponsored a variety of humanitarian endeavors outside of his business sector, mostly in his birthplace of Dusseldorf.
Germany has a strong tradition of pageantry, and Junkermann was no exception, serving on the board of directors of the Prinzengarde Düsseldorf Blau-Weiss, Düsseldorf’s largest carnival organization. The carnival was started in the 1920s, just before Junkermann’s birth, and annually on November 11th gave communal respite and opportunity for celebration. In its latter years, the committee authorized ‘Carnival Saturday’ — a day dedicated to supporting the organization Dusseldorf Aids in partnership with the Heartbreaker foundation. The carnival’s attendance continued to grow under Heinz’s tenure, and the event continues to collaborate with other philanthropic organizations.
