On Thursday 12th June 2014, at the Walterswil campus, of the International School of Zug and Luzern, Antonia, the widow of the late Director and owner of the School, Martin Latter, and his daughter, Sophie, were guests of honour at an emotional ceremony to unveil a statue of Martin.

Friends and members of the school community heard the current Director, Dominic Currer, tell of his admiration for Martin and his child-friendly educational philosophy - and of his support and encouragement for Art-teacher, Andrew Gray‘s concept for the project.

Later, Andrew told of how he felt that he was not alone in believing that there should be a permanent memorial to a man who had been an inspiration for so many. Andrew spent many months designing the statue, which was eventually sculpted by Basel-based, Michéle Elsener, and cast in bronze. The statue shows Martin seated with a box of birthday stones listening to a small girl. The stones are significant, for each child in the school was allowed to choose a stone on their birthday – and by delivering them personally, Martin knew each child’s name.

The statue is strategically located amid a small garden alongside a play area, an appropriate spot for Martin to watch over the children.
