* Carlo Hemmer (1913-1988) from Ettelbrück was an important economist from Luxembourg. Alongside his many professional endeavours both in and outside of Luxembourg, Hemmer had always been a strong supporter of the youth and therefore also of Luxembourg’s youth hostel network. Upon his passing, half of Hemmer’s wealth was donated to the ‘Fondation Lëtzebuerger Jugendherbergen’ founded in 1986 and later renamed to ‘Carlo Hemmer Foundation’. The aim of the foundation is to receive funds and manage the foundation’s assets in order to support youth hostels, social tourism, sporting events and educational activities – independent of political, social and religious aspects.
