Lothar Bergmann (1947-2009)

Lothar Bergmann, the German speleologist and environmentalist who lived in Tarifa for many years, died on Monday after a long illness. He was well-known in the Campo de Gibraltar for his untiring defense of what he called Art of the South, his way of saying prehistoric art. Lothar lived in Tarifa for thirty years, captivated, he used to say, by the area and by his wife Paqui. The above is but a small tribute to someone we had the privilege of meeting years ago. To his wife, family and many friends everywhere, our deepest sympathy.
