Welcome to Prominent People

Nelson Mandela, the inspiration of a Nation
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
1918 – 2013

Madiba, the tall man, the great leader and noble spirit passed away at 20:50 on 5 December 2013. He will always be an international legend – remembered for his leadership, his kindness, friendliness and forgiveness. His lifestyle speaks louder than many words.

There are many sites on the Internet where one can find information on well-known international personalities and various prominent people but most of them contain limited information. Biographies of interesting personalities are often difficult to find as many sites just casually refer to a prominent person. Often there are dozens of news clippings highlighting peripheral information or updates about his/her recent activities.

In former President Mandela’s case one would rather like to read his life-story, and interesting details of his prison experiences rather than browsing through old speeches, newspaper stories and the like.
