Justice Albie Sachs Receives Award from Netherlands Auschwitz Committee

The Hague-Justice Albie Sachs on Thursday 27 January 2005 will receive an award, the "Annetje Fels Kupferschidt award" from the Netherlands Auschwitz Committee.

Justice Sachs will also be a guest speaker at the "Nooit meer Auschwitz-lezing" (Never an Auschwitz again lecture) organized by the Netherlands Auschwitz Committee at the Beurs van Berlange in Amsterdam.

Annetje Fels Kepferschidt is the founder and Chair of the Netherlands Auschwitz Committee from 1974 - 1994. She passed away in 2001. The Objectives of the Committee are to:

- ensure that the atrocities at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Camps never happen again.

- fight against all forms of fascism, racism and anti-semitism

- look after the welfare of the survivors of the holocaust and their families.

Justice Albie Sachs credentials on human rights are extra-ordinary. He is himself a victim of racism policies. He lost his right arm and eye sight when the South African Apartheid Agents bombed his car in Mozambique.
