We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of the Vienna-born Jewish writer Frederic Morton, a longtime partner and friend of Austria and the Austrian Cultural Forum New York. His œuvre will remain a permanent bridge between the two worlds he lived in. Our sincere condolences go to his family, especially his daughter Rebecca.
ACFNY director Christine Moser is grateful that "he was our friend and regular visitor of our events including his Vienna Fin de Siècle discussion at the ACFNY in 2014. We are honored to present his last play "The Marquis Flight" on our stage in June 2015."
