Pforzheim’s Jewellery Museum is mourning the passing of its former Director Fritz Falk. The master goldsmith and holder of a PhD in art history significantly contributed to shaping the city’s cultural life for more than 35 years. With his acquisition policy, he laid the foundations for what meanwhile constitutes the impressively comprehensive collection of this renowned museum specialising in the art and history of jewellery-making, and established its international reputation.
