Beate and Serge
For many years Beate Klarsfeld - born Beate Kunzel in Berlin in 1939 - has
carried out an impassioned, committed and fearless campaign to hunt down
Nazi war criminals and bring them to justice. Golda Meir - a founder and
fourth prime minister of the State of Israel - summed up the admiration of
tens of thousands of people throughout the world for Beate Klarsfeld with
the words: "Courage, conviction, compassion, decency, justice and
self-sacrifice to the point of personal danger ... to Israel and the
Jewish people Mrs Klarsfeld is a Woman of Valour - a title that has no
peer in Jewish tradition."
