The people of Eritrea, at home and abroad, have lost one of their sons, the writer and poet Tesfamariam Woldemariam. From a studentleader in the heady days to a man who joined the liberation movement. He was a nationalist but strongly influenced by European thinkers, like Karl Marx and Jean-Paul Sartre. Two thinkers who are largely forgotten in Europe, especially the Frenchman Sartre. Some countries tried to step into the shoes of Marx and called themselves Marxist, but that never was a good bedfellow of democracy.
Here you find a tribute to the man from Eritrea.
