Sylke Tempel 1963-2017

Sylke Tempel was a leading commentator on German foreign policy, appreciated for her keen judgment and clarity of thought and language. She taught many Stanford students, both as a visitor at the home campus and for many years at Stanford's program in Berlin. When a hurricane passed through Berlin on October 4, she was hit by a falling tree and died instantly.  She will be sorely missed by all her knew her and benefited from her intelligence, her wit and her warmth.
