Passing of Frederic Morton
The Consulate General mourns Frederic Morton
The eminent New York-based writer died in Vienna, the city of his birth, on April 20th.
Consul General Georg Heindl expressed his heartfelt condolences to Frederic Morton’s daughter Rebecca. “His love of Vienna, and of Vienna’s language, its specific dialect, against the background of bitter memories, were very touching. In his writings, he was a bridge-builder between eras and continernts”.
Frederic Morton was born in Vienna on Oct. 5th, 1924. In 1939, he fled from Vienna to New York with his parents. As a journalist, he wrote for magazines such as “Esquire”, “Harpers” or “Hudson Review”. As a writer, he became famous with works such as “The Rothschilds”, “A nervous splendor – Vienna 1888/89”, “Thunder at Twilight - Vienna 1913/1914” or “The Forever Street”.
Morton was often a guest at invitations of the Consulate General. In December, 2013, at the invitation of Consul General Georg Heindl, he spoke at the Chanukkah celebration of the young generation of the American Jewish Committee. Many of the young people present had family roots in Austria – similar to Frederic Morton.
Opening of the Exhibition by Oskar Stocker "Yearning - Sehnsucht"
On February 19th, the exhibition “Yearning - Sehnsucht" by the artist Oskar Stocker, a resident of Graz, Styria, opened at the Consulate General with the artist present. Oskar Stocker painted the portraits of 22 Styrians who live abroad, having made their mark in countries such as the US, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Australia, South Africa or China.
The Speaker of the State Parliament of Styria, Franz Majcen, attended as guest of honor and extended especially warm greetings to all Styrians present.
In his speech, Consul General Georg Heindl thanked the Governor of Styria Mr. Franz Voves and the office for Styrians abroad in the framework of the State Government as well as the Mayor of Graz, Siegfried Nagl, for their great contribution towards realizing this exhibition.
The event also included a musical program which was assured by the Austrian saxophone player Lukas Gabric, who is studying at the New York Juilliard School, together with the pianist Reuben Allen, and by the world-renowned American opera singer Linda Watson, who was present as representative of the Graz-based American Institute of Musical Studies.
In his remarks, Oskar Stocker explained his special rapport with the persons he has portrayed, whose life evolves between their relation to their homeland and their ambition to realize themselves in distant lands.
A very special thanks goes to our sponsor of wine and sparkling wine, Wohlmuth Wine Estate in Kitzeck im Sausal, Styria.
