Ingrid Budde
Ingrid Budde, former President of the International Commission of the RWVI until 2008, died on 30 July 2017.

Her engaging, energetic personality beneath her blond helmet of hair shaped manyof the roles within the RWVI, and through her close contacts with New York and her linguistic abilities, she maintained contact with the Wagner societies in the USA.  She was also involved in the founding of the Wagner Society in China in Beijing with Prof. David SC Liu.

Ms. Budde's former colleagues on the Board will always treasure a living and grateful memory of her and of  her fellow Board Member Josef Lienhart.. 

The current Board the RWVI along with its President Horst Eggers also extend their well-deserved gratitude and recognitiion to Frau  Budde.
