Simone Veil (1927-2017)
It was with sadness that the Champalimaud Foundation learned of the passing of Simone Veil, esteemed member of the Champalimaud General Council.
“Simone Veil was one of a kind, a living symbol of the meaning of peace and of a Europe built against the backdrop of the horrors of the Holocaust, as well as the intractable struggle for liberty and equality.
It was the Champalimaud Foundation’s privilege to have Simone Veil as a Trustee. Her vision, illuminated by her life experiences, her sensibility and exceptional strength, contributed impressively to what the Champalimaud Foundation is.”
Leonor Beleza, President of the Champalimaud Foundation
