In Memoriam Sander de Groot (1943-2024)

The recent passing of Dr. Alexander (Sander) Hendrik de Groot leaves us saddened. Sander de Groot was a long-time board member of the Foundation Stichting Nederlands Instituut in Turkije. His dedication to the Netherlands Institute in Turkey and his significant efforts to help the institute through difficult years have been very meaningful and continue to be appreciated by the NIT staff. We cherish fond memories of his visits to Istanbul and of the academic events we co-organized with him at the NIT.

Professor emeritus Erik Jan Zürcher wrote an in memoriam (in Dutch) that can be read here.
