We mourn Fritz Molden

Prof. Fritz Molden has influenced the European Forum Alpbach for many years. He died at the age of 89.

With his death, the European Forum Alpbach loses one of its most important pioneers. Nearly 70 years ago, in 1945, Fritz Molden founded the forum together with his brother Otto. He supported our association until the end and never missed an event in Alpbach. Furthermore he used to be an active member in the management bodies of the Austrian College for many years. Molden’s publishing company published numerous conference proceedings.

Franz Fischler, President of the European Forum Alpbach, appreciates the commitment of Fritz Molden: “We lose a true companion. Many of us admire his courage and his vehement advocacy for a peaceful Europe. For his tireless efforts, I would like to thank him on behalf of all members and supporters of the European Forum Alpbach. Our condolences go to his wife Hanna and the entire family. “

The ORF showed a detailed documentary about the life and work of Fritz Molden on January 12th. The program is available for seven days in the ORF Mediathek.
