Merkwaardig- die mense in Macassar

Julie Upton, Somerset West

We really appreciated Annemarie Meyer’s article (“Die ou mense van Macassar,” Bolander August 3.

Working in Faure, we got to know some of the people living in Macassar – and certainly got to know quite a lot of its history and its people – but this article put a whole lot of “meat on to the bones”.

It is a story that needed to be told.

“Hulle het vrede gemaak met die verlede, en dit is hoekom daar nooit oor gepraat word nie.”

Dit is regtig merkwaardig.
