On 15th 2021 June Rene Saran achieved a momentous milestone of 100 years on this earth. Dr Rene Saran was Chair and Secretary of SFCP for many years and is currently an Honorary Member. BELMAS welcomed members of the Society for the Furtherance of Critical Philosophy (SFCP) for a joint celebration of Rene’s birthday. Here’s the video organised by BELMAS.
Her autobiographical book, ‘Rene’s Tree of Life’, covers a period spanning much of the twentieth century illuminating aspects of European history and politics. The chapters cover the author’s life, first as a child, growing up in the pre-Nazi period in Germany, then by emigration from Germany via Denmark to Britain, in the autumn of 1933, when Rene arrived in Harwich from Esbjaerg. The author soon acquired British nationality and has lived here since 1933 for over 80 years.
