Hmmm.... Rainald Grebe, German comedian and songwriter, especially known for the "Brandenburg" song has vasculitis:

Whatever this is, it has been causing strokes regularly, and more and more frequently, since 2017. Six of them in the latest episode in January.

Fritz Pleitgen update:

He's okay. Some good, some bad days. Looking emaciated to the german eyes who watched him for 30 years. Probably a few months left, I'd say. Like Alcee Hastings late last year.

Karl-Günther von Hase, former director of the "Second German Television" (ZDF), has finally died. He held that post from 1977 to 1982 as a result of a spontaneous candidacy.

 

Before that, he was a military figure, diplomat and politician:
During World War II, he was a General Staff Officer and spent some time captivity by the Soviets. In the 1950s and 1960s, he worked in diplomacy. For seven years he was ambassador in London. Before that, he worked for the German Secretary of state, was Head of the Press and Information Office of the Federal Government in the rank of State Secretary and switched to the minstry of defense.

He was 103 years old.

Mayröcker has written over eighty books.

She has been awarded with the Georg Büchner Prize in 2001.
She was a great poet but she has been publishing children's books, too.
Great information, as always, @TomTomTelekom;)

And she worked with Ernst Jandl, one of the main experimental poets, for nearly a half-century until his death in 2000.
