Shush! It's UDO TUESDAY!
You remember Udo Tuesday, don't you? Udo Tuesday is that day of the week (usually a Tuesday) when we get depressed and think about death a lot and celebrate some guy named Udo. This time the Udo is (OF COURSE) Udo Steinbach. This Udo is what in German is actually called a Dr. phil.! For real!
Some almost unknown Udo facts (courtesy of an Udo fan site):
- Professor Steinbach AKA Udo was the head of the Near East department of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP, 1971–74)
- Udo was also director of the German Orient Institute / German Institute for Middle East Studies (1976–2006).
- Udo is now a honorary professor at the University of Hamburg and visiting professor at the Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies (CNMS), University of Marburg (Germany).
U go, Udo!
