Stefanie Bremer is not a classic self-made story. Bremer inherited her fortune. She appears in the public under a pseudonym. Not because she doesn’t personally stand up for her stance, but to protect her family. Nevertheless, she is outspoken in the public, because the pandemic has made it clear once again how unequally wealth is distributed, including and especially in Germany where she lives.
