Otto von Habsburg a dedicated European

Otto Habsburg-Lothringen, the son of the last Austrian Emperor Charles I, died on Monday aged 98. The liberal conservative daily Die Presse praises the former senior member of the European Parliament as one of the first Europeans. "Otto von Habsburg, yesterday's man, was so fascinating for people today because he was raised from his earliest childhood to think in pan-European terms. After quickly waking from his dream of a Danube Confederation following 1945 (which would have reunited the countries of the former empire in a single entity), he was increasingly fascinated by the European dimension. He dedicated his astonishing energy to the idea of unity. And not in vain. He lived to see the realisation of this peaceful project. He stands in a line with Europe's foremost advocate, Schuman, Spaak and Adenauer."
