District Six was a multiracial community on the slopes of Devilís Peak, next to Table Mountain. In 1968, the apartheid Group Areas Act was applied to District Six. The people were forcibly removed and it was razed during the years 1970 to 1980.
The story is told by Vincent Kolbe who grew up in District Six and was instrumental in setting up a museum to preserve the districtís cultural legacy. Illustrated with sketches taken from photographs in the museum. Includes a word list.
