**Claus-Peter Reisch** (*1961) lives in Landsberg am Lech in Bavaria and is an independent merchant. During a holiday in Greece in 2015, the enthusiastic sailor came for the first time into direct contact with the effects of the so-called refugee crisis and decided to help save refugees. He achieved international fame as the skipper of the rescue ship "Lifeline". He has received several awards, including the Lew Kopelev Prize, for his efforts in saving the lives of hundreds of people.
