In memory of Jean Bernadt

Dot Cleminshaw pays tribute to Jean Bernadt

 

A woman who was perhaps the last of South Africa's great white anti-apartheid struggle icons has died. Jean Bernadt passed away peacefully on April 9, aged 96, at her home in Kenilworth, Cape Town. Jean was widowed just over four years ago in December 2007. Her husband was Himan Bernadt, a leading civil rights lawyer who founded the firm that is now Bernadt, Vukic, Potash & Getz.
