From his speech when he accepted the Nobel.

In 1986, he was awarded the Nobel Peace prize for his role in speaking out against violence, repression and racism.
When accepting it, he said: "Whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation, take sides.
"Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."


Worth remembering.

Sydney Schanberg, NYT journalist whose reporting inspired the Oscar-winning Hollywood film, "The Killing Fields"

I met him and Dith Pran at a talk whilst at uni. Interesting people, and hearing first hand their experiences in Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge, quite the impact.

Terrible news, he was a good friend of our family, my mum is absolutely devastated. He will surely be missed.

I met him once but can't claim to know him. I lived just down the road from his Chester estate. A friend was a childhood friend of his wife.

I can't believe Hugh is now the Duke, he is so young, alot of responsibility to fall on anyones shoulders, nevermind a 25 year old.
