We are saddened to learn of the death of our first and beloved benefactor, renowned painter Charlotte (Lotte) Lichtblau. Lotte lived in New York City and returned home to her native Austria frequently. Lotte and her husband, Hans, first met Rudi and his wife Jeanne in Connecticut in the summer of 1981. During their long friendship, Lotte painted a portrait of Rudi, which she also generously donated to the foundation.
We miss Lotte’s kind friendship and her understanding.
