OG. In this episode we talk to Marguerite Jonathan (77) and Arnold Isaacs (82) both former activists. They also happen to be my parents and together with them I dive into our family history. About growing up in an Apartheid system, how they fought against it. What made them leave their country and brought them to the Netherlands. About their first impressions of our nation, culture shocks and how their kids decided not to follow their example.
But also about the struggle, the movement, how they set things up and how they advice this generation and the generation after to keep the fire burning.
For me its a first real heart to heart together on this topic, after an hour into it I realized how much we as a total family had gone through before we even could say we had become first class citizens if anything, and I realize how much knowledge, stamina and dedication both my parents had to change a system like apartheid. It fills me with energy to continue on this road to spreading the talk. It makes me humble to who they are and what they represent. It also makes me humble as to how little I know and pushes me to get educated. They also shed a little light on what a stupid kid I was growing up, so no suprises there.
This is also this Season's Finale Episode. We will be back with Season 3 soon.
