Bram Fischler Passes away

September 10, 03 by Edahn Golan

Antwerp Diamond Bourse President, Abraham ‘Bram’ Fischler, 78, has died last night in Antwerp.

Fischler, a long time diamantaire, DTC Sightholder, former president of the Diamond High Council (HRD), former president and honorary life president of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses, started his career as a diamond cutter in Havana, Cuba after leaving Antwerp at the age of 15 in the beginning of World War II.

After the war he returned to Antwerp and together with a few family members that survived the Holocaust started Fischler Diamonds Inc.

Last fall King Albert of Belgium named him an Officer of the Order of the Crown in recognition of his successful diamond career and contributions to the community.

“My biggest achievement in all my years in the industry is my family name,” Bram told IDEX in a recent interview. “It is a true success that the family is together at work as well as everywhere else. An honorable name is something better than money.”
