How it all began:
One night in October 2005, hotelier Edmund Dornhöfer at the Jagdhof Glashütte in Wittgenstein was unable to sleep. So he started clicking through the TV programmes and around 3 a.m. came (certainly by destiny rather than by chance) upon a report about moonchildren (suffering from xeroderma pigmentosum, XP). He could hardly believe his eyes that such a sickness exists at all, but watched attentively and was deeply moved. “I’ll have to do something about this”, he thought.
As good as his word, Edmund Dornhöfer lost no time in contacting XP specialist Dr. Mark Berneburg at Tübingen University Clinic, Germany’s centre of reference for XP.
Toward the end of October the telephone rang one evening. Edmund Dornhöfer had decided to invite all 50 of Germany’s moonchildren to his Jagdhof Glashütte hotel in Bad Laasphe. He wanted to give them a good time for once, away from their day-to-day XP routine. He found it important thereby to get together with them and their families first and exchange notes informally – just as important as having a good time.
The children and their families were impressed not only by the spontaneous warmth of everyone at the Jagdhof, but also by the unforgettable atmosphere of comfort, peace and acceptance. In every corner there was something to discover, everything was so lovable and appealing. Then everyone was invited to a wonderful banquet in the cosy oriel room – and they enjoyed every minute of this delicious repast.
This annual get-together took place for the fifth time in 2010 – to the great delight of everyone at the Jagdhof.
