In Memory: Helen Suzman

Today remains Thursday, 1 January 2009.

Enough fun for this year, fellow kids.

Comes word of the death, at 91, of comrade Helen Suzman.

Member of the South African Parliament from 1953 to 1989, where she was for years the only white opponent of apartheid.

You could look it up: apartheid was modeled after the Nazi Nuremberg Laws persecuting Jewish Germans, the prelude to the Holocaust.

Friend of Nelson Mandela.

The Museum of the Bourgeois honours her life and memory.
