This is a gallery of the people behind all the articles on the site. Many are still missing. It turns out that many wrote for our magazines….
Here you will find all the editors, reporters (journalists), writers (occasional reporters) and translators and photographers.
Each person has a personal profile with the most current we were able to collect.
Everyone wrote voluntarily. No one was paid for his work. Thank you wonderful people!
Each of you is welcome to send an update to your personal profile, including a translation for the English page.
