 Henry Dunant
Parlare di Henry Dunant e della sua straordinaria vita non è facile volendo andare più in là delle date, degli avvenimenti e delle persone da lui incontrate.Le sue caratteristiche di follia e intraprendenza, insieme ad una grande determinazione sono state fondamentali per rendere la sua vita assolutamente fuori dall’ordinario.
Altrettanto vincenti si riveleranno le convinzioni del Dunant relative all’imparzialità del soccorso (al di fuori di ogni più sottile concezione a metà del 1800) e la neutralità dei soccorritori e dell’apparato di assistenza sanitaria per i militari feriti e malati in guerra.
A Dunant va riconosciuto il merito di aver visto lontano e di non aver mai vacillato nella sua convinzione di essere nel giusto, anche se poi tristi vicende relative a contrasti con persone e agli affari andati a rotolo, lo porteranno ad essere allontanato dalla società Ginevrina.
