His program in New Zealand included a visit to the National War Memorial in Wellington where he attended a wreath laying ceremony and officially handed over a tapestry commemorating WWI. The artist Stephan Schenk had travelled from Germany to participate in the ceremony and presented his artwork. At the end of January 2018, the tapestry found its final place in the entrance hall to the „Great War Exhibition“ adjacent to the National War Memorial.
