Albert "Albie" Louis Sachs (born 30 January 1935) is an activist and a former judge on the Constitutional Court of South Africa. After having his arm blown off by a car-bomb in Mozambique due to his opposition to apartheid, he fled to the United States, and currently resides in Cape Town, South Africa. Sachs was born into a South African family of Lithuanian Jewish background. He attended the South African College School (SACS) in Cape Town.
Albie Sachs is South African, what the officer meant was that he was Jewish. This book is surprisingly well-written for a jail diary. The second was his questioning how some monks could choose the life of an anchorite. But then again, the author went on to become South Africa's Chief Justice. Not such a great literary piece, but an outstanding historical document.
