Simone Veil, 1992

“With her passing, we have lost one of Europe’s most iconic figures. A potent symbol in France of Holocaust remembrance and a champion of women’s rights, Simone Veil was a committed European who was the first president of the European Parliament. She left an indelible mark on the second half of the 20th century.”
