It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Elizabeth Neill MBE, former longstanding Chairman of the Library and Honorary President, passed away on 21 May 2017. The funeral was a very brief and private ceremony on Friday. Liz Neill had asked for her ashes to be laid to rest in England.

As many of you know, Liz Neill was one of the driving forces who fought to keep the library and invested a great deal of time and energy in the last 16 years in her role as Chairman to make it the unique place that it is today. We have put out a condolence book in the front room and would greatly appreciate it if you could come by during the library hours to write a small farewell message or your thoughts about what the library means to you. If you are not based in Düsseldorf, you could either send a small card to the library or email us and we would incorporate your message into the book. The book will be given to the family at a later date.


 We thank our generous sponsors for their support.


We also thank our Patron, Susan Speller, HM Consul General, and all our private sponsors and friends.
