When one thinks about the struggle against the South African apartheid regime, the
figure of Nelson Mandela, who spent his entire life for a multiracial and constitutional
South Africa, comes to mind.
However, many other Righteous shared Mandela's dream. Like Mandela, they endured imprisonment and isolation to defend the freedom and equality of all human beings.
In apartheid South Africa, exemplary figures from both the black and white communities fought for a free and democratic society in which all people could live in harmony and with equal opportunities. There were also Righteous people who spent their whole life trying to nip in the bud any spirit of revenge, working to promote reconciliation and justice.
