SirOrmondeWinter;2962804]Again, you're saying nothing! We were the American people and we sure did bring civilization to the rest of the world.
Historum members can appreciate your supremacist delirium, which I have been denouncing for many posts.
You have a big problem with history and you tell yourself a lot of stories.
What crime against humanity?
Here too, I think Historum members can realize there's something wrong with you.
There were so many crimes and oppressions that unfortunately we have so many choices.
For example the Atlantic triangular slave trade or the massacre of aborigines in Australia.
Us suffering in a war the Boers declared against us? I'm not the crazy one, I think you qualify for that, what crimes, what oppression? What are you talking about?
"Originally, the concentration camps were intended to intern Boer families whose farms had been destroyed during the application of the "scorched earth policy" led by British troops. There were a total of 45 tent camps built to house these civilians as well as 64 others for blacks (farm boys, shepherds, etc.) who had lived with the Boers.
The Boers camps sheltered mainly elderly people, women and children for a total of about 120,000 people; 25,630 of them were deported abroad.
A post-war report estimated the number of Boer deaths at 27,927 (including 22,074 children under the age of 16) and 14,154 black deaths from starvation, disease and sun exposure. In all, about 25% of Boers and 12% of Blacks died (recent research suggests an underestimation of African casualties, which in fact amounted to about 20,000 victims).
Wives and children of combatant soldiers also received lower rations.
Here is the action of a British heroin who fought to denounce the crime of the British concentration camps.
The Afrikaners paid tribute to her by allowing her ashes to be placed in the monument that commemorates this terrible episode of British repression during the Second Boer War.
About this terrible photo showing Lizzie van Zyl, visited by Emily Hobhouse in the Bloemfontein concentration camp :
In fact it was the daughter of a Boer fighter on whom her British keepers were particularly relentless and who moved Emily Hoblouse a lot.
She starved to death.
South africans don't forget that:
We were the people who defeated the Nazis and Soviets and liberated the death camps and gulags, remember, the British, the good guys.
We could also mention the British concentration camps in Kenya in the 1950s.
