Statement of
Dennis W. Archer,
Mayor of Detroit
to Bernd Vöhringer, Oberbürgermeister von Sindelfingen


November 20, 2001

The Honorable Bernd Vohringer
Stadt Sindelfingen
Rathausplatz 1
D-71063 Sindelfingen

Dear Mayor Vohringer:

I want to thank you for your support of and participation in the memorial service held
in Sindelfingen to honor the Americans and international citizens who lost their lives
on September 11, 2001.

I also appreciate your support of the establishment of the Detroit House at the
Sindelfingen Market Square, next to your City Hall. It is my hope that this house, as
part of the art exhibition being staged by the Art Institute of Sindelfingen and the Art
Society Kunst+Projekte Sindelfingen, will improve public knowledge of and
appreciation for the City and the people of Detroit. Enclosed is the requested
symbolic statement of my support for the flying of the Detroit Tricentennial flag at
the Detroit House.

The overwhelming response of international leaders like yourself to the September 11
attacks have proven the size and strength of the worldwide community which is
dedicated to peace and understanding among cities and nations. The friendship of the
people of Sindelfingen is much appreciated.

With warm regards,

Dennis W. Archer
