Shadow Minister of South Africa
Letter of appreciation and admiration. I knew you by name and
reputation way before I had read your book or had heard you speak. Our families share a history dating back to the war that few will acknowledge in its entirety. It was due to the brave and honest efforts of yourself that allowed for open discussion.
Unfortunately, we live in a time that should have seen us
progress from the thirties and forties and take us away
from ever repeating the mistakes of our past, yet a century
later and we seem to be facing an enormous rise in anti-Semitism
again. Levels of propaganda and the severity of it are considered
worse than Germany pre-war time. At a time like this,
I am reminded of the words from Anne Rice: “Evil is always
possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.”

In a world of fake news, social media and influencers, people learn from peers and not teachers. They get facts from social media and not an encyclopaedia. So, it is all too easy for people to fall for a populist sentiment or what is perceived as a populist sentiment due to biased media and mediums. The real heroes are the good people at heart that will still speak out against the intimidation, threats, and isolation in the name of truth and justice.
Silvia, please accept my admiration and appreciation for you being one of these heroes. Please keep up the excellent work and let your truth and moral compass guide you always. The world needs more people of your fibre because until we have truth, we can never have reconciliation and without reconciliation the world will never see peace.
Yours sincerely, Darren Bergman, MP, shadow minister international relations and cooperation; executive member of the SADC parliamentary forum (treasurer); member of the liberal international human rights committee.
