Breadcrumb

Today marks 75 years since the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

However, demonstrations in Windhoek turned into violent clashes between the residents and the apartheid police, resulting in the killing and wounding of many natives 11 years after the document's passage in 1959.

These are the graves of those who felt the fatal wrath of the South African police forces on December 10, 1959.
