Horst Krekeler R.I.P

In the 1980ies to 90ies Horst stood for bonsai in Germany. The bonsai scene in Germany definitely would not be the same without him. Horst was and excellent teacher and had thousands of student over the years. He acted internationally, being in the USA often in the 90ies and to many other places in the world. Horst was quite a character, a very nice and gentle man. We will not forget him.

I am just now discovering that Horst Krekkeler died.
I agree that he was an important bonsai teacher.
Horst had a rather unique perspective on bonsai as a physical therapist, recognizing the therapeutic effects of the pursuit of bonsai beauty.
