George Lichter, textile, war hero, reconteur We lost a good friend last week. Death is always something we must deal with, but losing George Lichter was different for me. Seldom in life do we encounter such a powerful and unique personality. George was a textile maven, a war hero, and a raconteur, especially entertaining over a bottle of wine. He could be tough and kind, enigmatic, and a seeker of the higher and better self. The Esalen Institute in Big Sur was a favorite destination. He would laugh telling me about washing dishes at the retreat as if it was a spiritual experience. fabric, New York, Fifth Avenue, art exhibit I met George Lichter in the 70's on a fabric buying trip in George sat next to Edgar Silberman, another larger-than-life guy! George Lichter, fighter pilot, World War II, Israel, statehood George was a decorated fighter pilot during World War II and flew 88 combat missions over enemy territory. Shortly after the war ended and Israel declared statehood, he felt compelled to help the cause. The Israelis sent him to a medieval village in Czechoslovakia to train novice pilots on the dangerous S-199's. He was feared as much as respected by the young pilots as George was serious and disciplined! pilot, George Lichter, Ceske Budjovice air base The pilots relax from the rigorous training at the Ceske Budjovice air base.
