District Six: Memories, Thoughts and Images
Before 1966, District Six, Cape Town, was an area of diverse people of many religions and customs living in a lively and helpful community. From 1966 onwards, the Nationalist Government of the time enacted their policy of forced removals, often to designated new places on the distant Cape Flats, and then demolished the entire area with the exception of some places of worship.
