Frauke Gewecke died

Prof. Dr. Frauke Gewecke

All too soon this past weekend Professor Frauke Gewecke, a founding member of SoCaRe, Emerita in Heidelberg and German pioneer of Caribbean Research, died.

Frauke Gewecke`s death is a severe  human and scientific loss and seems incomprehensible in the face of the inexhaustible energy with which she devoted herself to the research, students and colleagues.

The funeral will take place next Friday, 27 July at 12.45 clock on Bergfriedhof in Heidelberg.
