Country of My Skull, Paperback Book

Country of My Skull Paperback



The first free elections in South Africa's history were held in 1994.

Within a year legislation was drafted to create a Truth and Reconcilliation Commission to establish a picture of the gross human rights violations committed between 1960 and 1993.

It was to seek the truth and make it known to the public and to prevent these brutal events ever happening again.

From 1996 and over the following two years South Africans were exposed almost daily to revelations about their traumatic past.

Antije Krog's full account of the Commission's work using the testimonies of the oppressed and oppressors alike is a harrowing and haunting book in which the voices of ordinary people shape the course of history. WINNER OF SOUTH AFRICA'S SUNDAY TIMES ALAN PATON AWARD
