Bloemfontein Concentration Camp

Taken on 1901-01-01

Concentration camps in the Second Boer War were initially refugee camps for persons displaced by the war. Ultimately, these camps turned into concentration camps as victims of the British scorched earth campaign, many of them women and children, were forced off their land and into collective camps. Subpar living conditions corresponded with the camps' altered purpose, and many internees died.
