Hello Ben, Susan and I express our condolences on the death of your father. He lived an extraordinary long and purposefull life. I know he is missed by you and your family. Dr. Becker noted in Sept. that you are doing very well in SanFrancisco, which is great news. Hope his hip/knee is working. The west coast does seem more your type of local. Susan and I are enjoying retirement in Williamsburg with folks that are doing likewise. We look foreward to hearing from you. Sincerely, George

I had the extraordinary honor and extreme privilege to, not only meet Hanns Loewenbach in 2006, but to sit one-on-one and hear him share the story of his life with me. I interviewed him and wrote an article for the Beacon section of The Virginian-Pilot. I had the pleasure of speaking with him again, in 2009, at another Holocaust-related exhibit at Ocean Lakes High School. For me, Mr. Loewenbach's strong Yiddish accent conjured up fond memories of my late grandparents. But, his words, "If you want to learn from the future, you have to know the past" are a lesson and reminder for all that the only way to keep the spirit of survivors, like Hanns Loewenbach, alive is to continue to share, teach and speak of the atrocities that took place. Alav hashalom.

I would like to share my condolences with the family and to thank Mr. Loewenbach for sharing his message. He touched the lives of many of my students in order to make sure that this message reverberates throughout the world.

My wife and I knew your father and his late wife from the pool at Cypress Point Golf and Country Club, where we spent many a pleasant, lazy summer day swimming, swapping stories, and - especially - listening to Hanns' remarkable tales from his truly extraordinary life. I can still see him standing on the pool deck, bronzed, fit, and smiling. And that is how I shall always remember him. He was a unique and dear friend who will be sorely missed by so many. Please accept our sincere condolences. Our hearts go out to you as you cope with your loss which is our loss, too.
