They stopped at the previously planned strategy determined consistently and could not be swayed by recessions, massive loan defaults and other obstacles. Thus our students in all difficult times kept the nerves, generated a profit of 67.8 million euros and thus made the strongest competitors from Hildesheim and Helmstedt with a prologue of over 6 million euros to the courts. 2 and 3
