Lothar Lutze passes away

Lothar Lutze, Emeritus Professor, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, passed away on the night of 4 March in Berlin, in the presence of his family.

Lothar Lutze (born on September 7th 1927) taught at the SAI from 1965 to 1992. He was a passionate lover of literature, and widely recognized as a translator of modern literature in Hindi, Bengali, and other South Asian Languages. Lothar Lutze was awarded with the Tagore- as well with the George-Grierson-Prize. For his outstanding contributions to literature and education he received the Padma-Shri-Award in 2006. Under his direction, numerous well-known authors from South Asia found their way to HD. He is fondly remembered by many of his students as a compelling university teacher.

The SAI is saddened by Professor Lutze's loss, and wishes to express its profound sympathy to his loved ones.
