 Brandfort concentration camp    15 550 Boer women and children died

The concentration camp called Dwyersdorp lies just outside Brandfort. A garden of remembrance was created in memory of the 15 550 women and children who died during the Anglo-Boer War of 1899 to 1902. These large number of women and children where the victims of the absolute shocking conditions in the British concentration camp at Brandfort. The austere cenotaph has a stirring title:

 
"Rus in vrede tere bloeisels,
    offer van die storm
    want uit welke moedertrane
     is die steen gevorm"

English translation:

"Rest in peace tender blossoms
sacrifice of the storm
(because) out of mothers tears
  the stone was formed"
