The Boer War
Following the Battle of Paardeberg during the Anglo-Boer War (in 1900) British forces captured Bloemfontein, where they built a concentration camp. Today, the National Women’s Memorial, on the outskirts of Bloemfontein, pays homage to those that died in the concentration camps during the war in South Africa. Emily Hobhouse from Britain (9 April 1860 – 8 June 1926) is always remembered with the Woman’s Memorial. Hobhouse fought relentlessly with the British Government for the women and children to improve their condition and reduce disease.
Emily Hobhouse returned to Britain to gain support and inform the British Public what was happening in these camps. Ehrlich Park fire station in Bloemfontein houses the largest fire service museum in South Africa. If you are in Bloemfontein it may be a great idea to visit the museum.
