Kurt Lutz

Kurt Lutz was a well-regarded German luthier who, along with many other instrument makers, settled in Bubenreuth, Germany following World War II. Mr. Lutz provided a first-hand account of the era by explaining that the city council created a poster seeking to find instrument makers displaced by the war who were looking for a new place to live. The town even created special housing for instrument makers, including Mr. Lutz, who lived in the buildings with his family for several years until his business was established and he was able to buy his own house.
