The former member of the state parliament and councillor Dr. Eugen Gerritz was chairman of the association from 1999 to 2005. It was the only honorary position he accepted after completing his work as a cultural politician at local and state level. The promotion of the memorial was a personal concern of his. Full of enthusiasm, Dr. Gerritz announced in 1999 that the association would soon grow into a "people's movement". In the course of time, the latter turned out to be too bold a perspective. But it is a good way to continue working in this direction. The honorary membership was awarded to him on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the association.
Götz Waninger, born in 1941, was impressed by the writings of Aurel Billstein when Rita Thies was the chairwoman of the association. He had studied sociology and philosophy and worked as head of the internal communications department at the Krefeld public utility company. When some years later Dr. Eugen Gerritz announced his vision of Villa Merländer e.V. as the core of a "people's movement", Götz Waninger was virtually predestined for a new project of the association, the Merländer-Brief. For a good 20 years he organised, designed and produced the bi-annual publication with great dedication. He thus played an important role in making the NS-Documentation Centre, the Villa Merländer and the Friends of the Association known to a broad public far beyond the borders of Krefeld.
