German term or phrase:hervorrufen
Große Resonanz rief der 75. Geburtstag von Ruth Schmidt am 9. September hervor.
Just part of a report about a pretty special person (in her charitable field)
If possible the sentence please, I have a mental blockage this morning!
@aniello: I'd say reaction or response. this is a well-known nun and doctor who has earnt much respect during her life and has now had her 75th birthday. she is not the major part of this yearly activity report for the charitable organisation
Explanation: Take your pick ...
Depending on the context, "made a big splash" might also fit.
(Since you mention a blockage I take the liberty to add the comment: Garielle is right and the sentence needs turning around in English.)
