In the aftermath of September 11, eight German newspapers printed condolence messages that their readers could cut out, stick to postcards, and mail to the United States Ambassador in Berlin. 
Over 30,000 people used these cards in an outpouring of sympathy. The newspapers later produced a 20-page insert listing the names of participants.
