Catherine Wilkinson (1786-1860) was an Irish migrant who became known as the *Saint of the Slaves *. In 1832 during a cholera epidemic she had the only boiler in her neighbourhood so she invited those with infected clothes or linen to use her boiler at the cost of a 1 penny a week. She saved many lives as a result. This became the first public washhouse in Liverpool. She showed them how to use a chloride of lime to get them clean. Boiling killed the cholers bacteria. Kitty pushed for the establishment of public baths where the poor could bathe, 10 years later, with the support of the District Provident Society and William Rathbone, plus public funds, the first combined washhouse and public baths in the U.K. was opened on Upper Fredrick Street in Liverpool . In 1846 she was appointed superintendent of the public baths . She died in 1846 aged 73 having already been recognised for her Indefatigable and self denying during her lifetime by the mayor of Liverpool that year.

Victor Schoelcher was Frenchman who travelled to Mexico, Florida, Louisiana and Cuba on a business trip. During his travels he realised how appalling the slaves were treated and became a leading figure in the abolitionist movement. He is seen as the father of the abolition of Slavery in the French colonies. He was appointed in 1848 as under-secretary of the navy and the colonies. As part of the provisional government of the brand new Second Republic in France he wrote the decree abolishing slavery in all French colonies signed on27th April 1848. In the decree he stated that Slavery is a violation of Human dignity. The government rejected his proposal to compensate the former slaves with grants for plots of land.
