Mourning becomes...

Post/memory and commemoration of the concentration camps of the South African War 1899-1902

Encounters MUP

  • Challenges many supposed 'facts' about the concentration camps established by the British military during the South African War
  • Demonstrates that much so-called 'memory' of the concentration camps was the product of 'post/memory' - a process in which 'what was remembered' was shaped and reshaped over time
  • Contains many detailed extracts from archival documents and a large number of photographs of commemorative sites
  • The links which are demonstrated between war memory, state commemoration and (proto-) nationalist politics exist in present-day as well as other historical examples of public remembrance, and so its conceptual and analytical framework can be used to explore many other case studies
