In Memory of Arie Katzenstein
Arie Katzenstein, had Israeli and German citizenship and had lived and completed his studies in Munich.
A piece of commemorative artwork for the memorial has been commissioned from internationally renowned artist Alicja Kwade. The completion of the artwork is planned for the year 2024. The Katzenstein family, who live in Israel, and the City of Munich’s Cultural Department and Building Department are involved in the process. To mark the occasion, the state capital, together with Brainlab AG, has invited the Katzenstein family to Munich in June 2023.
“February 10, 1970 and the terrible death of our father has left its mark on our family history. We are very touched that this tragic event has not been forgotten in Munich so that our children and grandchildren have a place to visit to commemorate it. We are happy to accept the invitation to Munich to help shape the content of the historical site,” said the children of Arie Katzenstein.
