Helen Bamber, anti-torture activist, passes away

From The Washington Post:

Helen Bamber, who at 19 traveled alone to post-World War II Germany to care for former inmates of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and became one of the world’s most relentless advocates for the victims of war, genocide and torture, died Aug. 21 in London. She was 89.

She was a courageous woman. It’s too bad there were not more like her. Read more of Adam Bernstein’s obituary of Bamber at The Washington Post.
