ADVOCATE GEORGE BIZOS HONOURED AT THE APARTHEID MUSEUM

 

On 26 October 2017, the Apartheid Museum launched a new wing – the George Bizos Gallery – a few weeks ahead of Bizos’ 90th birthday.

The life and contribution of George Bizos to the quest for freedom and democracy in South Africa has intersected with key events in the country’s history. As an advocate defending anti-apartheid activists like Nelson Mandela, as a representative of the nameless poor and vulnerable, or as a participant drawing up South Africa’s Constitution in the democratic era, he has expounded principles and practices that continue to resonate with universal struggles for justice.
