In memoriam

We are saddened to announce that Dr Cecilia Odé, former FIPLV Editor of Publications and member of both FIPLV Executive and World Council, passed away 9th January 2019. Cecilia was much loved by everyone she came into contact with and our world is a little poorer for not having her in it with us. Please find here an obituary for Cecilia. You can also find an obituary in the Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant.

FIPLV is sad to announce the passing of Professor Dr. Reinhold Freudenstein. With Reinhold’s death on 24 October 2015 the Federation has lost a first-rate former Officer, Secretary General from 1972 to 1977, Editor from 1977 to 1994 and Honorary Counsellor from 1995.
