Martin was a close friend of mine for almost three decades. Martin´s parents and grandparents were friends of my grandparents. His grandparents lived just opposite the street of my grandparents home in Warstein-Sichtigvor, Germany. We both shared an intense interest in history and had a lot discussions on all kind of subjects over the last decades. I am grateful, that we have been in close contact for so long. Our thoughts are especially with Lore, David and Mordechai.and Martin´s grandchildren. "Letum non omnia finit."

I will always remember Professor Ostwald, whom I met at Penn, as one of the kindest people I've ever met. He was a wonderful man, and I send my condolences to his family and friends.
