  • M. George Bidault

    Foreign Minister

    France stands at the bier of this great man The world has heard today one of the saddest tidings of our time. He ... showed that goodwill and renunciation would conquer hate and ambition. Not only his own people will mourn him, but all those who believe in the possibility of brotherly understanding. Mr. Gandhi gave the example of an obstinate, an absolute search for love of mankind, whatever their race or religion. France stands tonight at the bier of this great man, fallen victim to the violence against which he always fought. May his sacrifice crown his life-work.
