During the Anglo Boer War (1899 - 1902) the British had two big concentration camps in Nelson Mandela Bay. One was erected at Kemsley Park in Port Elizabeth while the other one is situated on the current show grounds just outside Uitenhage. On both of these sites there are memorials remembering the mostly women and children who suffered and died in these camps. The pic is of the memorial at Kemsley Park next to the SAPS sports grounds. I will post a pic of the Uitenhage memorial on another occasion.
Did you know: The Anglo Boer War was the first time in history that concentration camps were used.
