A Human Being Died that Night Paperback / softback



While working for South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Committee, Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela interviewed former police colonel Eugene De Cock, who commanded a unit believed to have killed a number of anti-apartheid activists.

De Cock was charged with, among other crimes against humanity, six murders and sentenced to 212 years in prison.

A Human Being Died That Night is about the complexities of post-apartheid South Africa and sees a white man exploring his psyche with a member of the race he tried to annihilate.
