South Africa has lost its greatest son. The Heinrich Böll Foundation mourns with the nation of South Africa at this very sad time. Our thoughts are with the Mandela family and the people of South Africa.
It is the commitment of Nelson Rohlilahla Mandela to values such as freedom, equality and respect that informs the work of the Heinrich Böll Foundation and that of our partners in South Africa and around the globe.
His extraordinary spirit and humanity will never be forgotten.
