Recreating Our Community – Memory, Restitution and Action: from an interview with Terence D. Fredericks


In this piece, Terence Fredericks, the Chairman of the District Six Museum Foundation, in Cape Town, South Africa, describes the inspiring work of the District Six Museum. This museum is involved in not only honouring the memory of the community of District Six, from which thousands of people were forcibly removed by the Apartheid regime, but also working with this memory, welcoming people to history, developing meaningful restitution and, importantly, re-creating the community. This piece is derived from an interview conducted by David Denborough.
