History of Dr. Roos
Apart from her veterinary work, Dr Roos has led a varied and interesting life. Born in Durban in 1931, she and her family visited relatives in Germany in 1939. The visit which was supposed to last a couple of months, turned into 8 years spent in war ravaged Germany. It was a time when the child Margaret had to grow up very quickly and learn to live with the loss of her father and brother. It was also the time when her future life philosophy was formed : "Everybody is responsible for their own life, their success or failures, their joy or their misery. We all have the choice of accepting or rejecting challenges and opportunities that come our way."
