Stephane Hessel
  • Stéphane Hessel, was born in Berlin in 1917 and moved to France in 1925. Over the course of a career as a diplomat, he traveled around the world. His World War II experiences, both as a soldier in the Free France movement and a deportee to Buchenwald, led to him being appointed Secretary of the Commission that drew up the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Still involved in several activist organizations, his work has been recognized with many prizes and awards, including the French Legion of Honor, in 2006. He is also a writer and a poet. He died in 2012.
