Happy 108th birthday to Mr Georges Loinger!

Georges Loinger, an emblematic figure of the OSE, has just celebrated his 108th birthday, surrounded by his family and friends.

On August 29, friends and family gathered at Georges Loinger’s home for a warm birthday ceremony. Jean-François Guthmann, President of the OSE and Patricia Sitruk, Director General, were present alongside this emblematic and historic figure of the OSE association.
