Passings ~ Stéphane Frédéric Hessel (1917-2013)

Stéphane Hessel has died. Hessel was a survivor of the camps, a veteran of anti-Nazi resistance, contributed to writing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and, more recently, author of a notorious pamphlet "A Time for Outrage." There is a report here at The New York Times and one here at The Guardian. Somehow I missed them when they appeared.
