Dear Friends of Aljaž Gaberšek,

Aljaž has been buried in Slovenia last Tuesday. We are happy that some friends have been there and passed their and our respect and a last goodbye to him together with his family and friends in Slovenia.

The Memorial for Aljaž in Wageningen, organised by Wageningen University and Aljaž’ friends will be held on Friday the 24th of October at 4.00 pm.

The Memorial will take place in Impulse, a meeting place on the campus,  Building 115 Stippeneng 2, 6708 WE Wageningen.

The ceremony can be joined through WUR-tv as well.

There will be a condolence book in which you can write your name or something else you want to say. Also letters or short notes, pictures or something else you will add will be collected and this condolence book will be handed to Aljaž’ family later. Contributions received by email will also be added, you can send these to Anton (

From Monday 27 to Wednesday 29 October there will be the possibility as well to write down your condolences in the GAIA building, ground floor.

Aljaž was an active member of scouting. His family in Slovenia asked to give a donation for the Slovenian scouting instead of flowers. We will share in this intention; there will be the possibility to make a donation for the Scout Association of Slovenia.

After the Memorial meeting there will be coffee and tea and time to share. The building will close at 7.00 pm.

All the best,
