The Denis Goldberg House of Hope (HOH) invites everyone, in South Africa and beyond, to join the proceedings of the memorial service for the late struggle icon, Denis Goldberg.

Goldberg died on Wednesday, 29 April 2020, at the age of 87. In 2016 he founded the Denis Goldberg Legacy Foundation Trust. A major part of their work has been the creation of the HOH, a space in Hout Bay where young people from across the peninsula can bridge divides, engage in cultural activities and skills building, and learn about one another.

Along with his liberation credentials, the trust and the HOH, Goldberg leaves behind a legacy that includes an endless list of achievements and accolades, such as receiving an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, the University of Cape Town (UCT).

Details of the memorial service are as follows:
