Seven Days to Live – Welt am Sonntag

Armin Gloor has decided to commit suicide on his 70th birthday. Still in good health, he wants to leave before he needs to receive care. I spent an afternoon with him one week before his death.

He has assiduously prepared everything for his passing. His personal belongings are marked with colored stickers denoting who they will be given to and 136 letters to inform friends and family are ready to be sent. With such limited time left to live he was still excited to take pictures of a helicopter landing on his neighbor’s field.
