Andreas Furtwängler (son of Wilhelm and Elisabeth) evokes Sami Habra.

... Yes, I remember well the lectures that Sami organized, where he compared different interpretations, lectures well followed by friends of "Furt.". When I studied in Paris from 1969 to 1970, I often met him: we sometimes went to lunch together because he worked at the bank of Lebanon and I was nearby, at the National Library. At that time he wore a vest in which he placed huge pocket watches, which he took out from time to time to impress some ladies in restaurants. It was very fun! My daughter Elisabeth stayed at his home in Versailles, he was a family friend, who came a few times to Switzerland and finally to Heidelberg at my mother’s funeral.
