Dear Friends of Horst and Annemarie Bredow and the German U-Boat Museum,
it is my sad duty to inform you on behalf of Annemarie Bredow that Horst Bredow has passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon, Sunday, 22nd of Feb 2015, in his house at Altenbruch.
There will be no funeral service and other forms of gathering, since Horst has declared his last will his ashes to be given to the sea quietly.
Annemarie has asked me to let you know that she will continue leading the "Foundation German U-Boat Museum" as chairman as disposed by Horst Bredow building on the support of the friends of the Museum and Archive. Therefore, it is firm intent to carry on with the work of the Museum and Archive.
Hence, the next joint meeting of the Executive and Advisory Board of the foundation remains on schedule for Friday, 10th of April 2015. Also, the next annual general meeting of the Association of Friends of the Tradition Archive U-Boats (FTU) will be executed as scheduled on Saturday, 11th of April 2015.
The news of the death of Horst Bredow will be spread throughout the next days via this line or by phone. The yearbook "Das Archiv" currently in print and to be distributed until early March will also mention the sad end of Horst.
On behalf of Annemarie Bredow I remain with my best regards
