I was here yesterday in Johannesburg.. I am sorry if anyone has posted this before but I found this both moving and interesting. Names of many of the fallen are carved into each of the pilars. Unfortunately my photos didnt capture them very well. I have other photos but unfortunately they exceed the size permitted.
