In June 2001, Albie Sachs and his partner, Vanessa September, left from Cape Town’s airport for a rare, six-week journey together that would take them to London, through Belfast, Brussels, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Berlin, Stockholm, Helsinki and St. Petersburg. Much more than a 'journal' of an especially memorable journey, The Free Diary of Albie Sachs covers a wide range of subjects and experiences in an open, frank narrative that covers a diverse set of issues, thoughts, ideas and responses to people, life, art and the world. Interspersed with memories of the past, and with Vanessa’s own voice ever present, Albie Sachs reveals the joys and rich loves of his life. He shares openly his faith and lively hope for the humane renovation of his homeland, and the continent of which it is a part.
