Lela Gilbert, Baroness Cox: Eyewitness to a Broken World (Oxford: Monarch, 2007)

Reviewed by Rev Dr Darren Cronshaw

Einstein said "the world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who didn't do anything about it". Baroness (Caroline) Cox has a deep and inspiring commitment to human rights and freedom, and does something about it.

A nurse by professional background, she jokes she is a Baroness by astonishment, having been asked in 1982 by Margaret Thatcher to serve in the House of Lords. She speaks up from that platform on behalf of those facing persecution. She founded HART (Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust) as a vehicle for practical compassion for suffering victims.

In a world that suffers injustice greater than we can often imagine and on a scale where individuals are lost in overwhelming numbers, Baroness Cox travels to where she hears about injustices to collect eyewitness evidence. When she sends aid, she often goes along with it - even if her plane is shot at or she has to cross borders illegally.

Author Lela Gilbert takes the reader on some of the Baroness' travels. We read of Russia and other countries moving on from Communism and their sometimes inhuman treatment of people with disabilities. We meet victims of Burma's brutal dictatorship, including some of the 70,000 child soldiers and Ma Su, a 38 year old Karen lady, who spoke of the soldier who shot her: "I love him. The Bible tells us to love our enemies - so of course I love him. He is my brother." (p116) We are overwhelmed with the scale of suffering in Southern Sudan where 2 million have died, 4 million displaced and Christians are forced into slavery or invited to embrace Islam for food and medicine.

I am grateful that Baroness Cox has dedicated her life to speaking for the people that are victims of evil. Sadly, children are being maimed in different parts of the world. Hope is needed as well as help.
