Tribute to Pontus Grate

It is with much regret that we announce the passing of Pontus Grate, the very first director of the Institut Suédois in Paris, at the age of 96. A highly cultured man with an impeccable command of French, Pontus Grate played an incalculable role in developing cultural contacts between France and Sweden. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Elisabet Grate and their children.
