Raul Krauthausen who is fighting for a fairer world for already years now.

You have the chance to become the German Federal Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Danny-Ralph Cäsar: To be honest, I would fight for more jobs not being an honorary post. Also, this position needs a possibility to really influence something politically.
Your life is made into a film: Who would represent you?
Danny-Ralph Cäsar: To this question, I really do not know a good answer. I think, I’m too humble to think that someone wants to make a movie about me. I prefer making good disability policy and take an active role in politics.
I would like to be ...
Danny-Ralph Cäsar: … Member of the Bundestag.
Which questions would you like answered the most?
Danny-Ralph Cäsar: When will the idea of inclusion reach everyone?
