Hector Pieterson Museum
Opened on the 16th of June 2002, this museum was built in memory of Hector Pieterson, a twelve year old who was one of the first casualties of the uprising in 1976. Over 500 people were killed in this protest against the forced use of Afrikaans, as a medium of instruction in the township schools. The museum is made of red brick like the surrounding dwellings and has a cathedral-like feel to it. One sad fact is that there is no living picture of Hector available - his image is recorded only through the infamous pictures of his dead body being carried out by his schoolmate and sister. Also on display is a Death Register, photographs and videos. Not a happy place to visit, but one that forcibly reminds visitors of South Africa's very recent troubles. Call ahead for more details.
