    schema:description ""District Six Revisited" is set to become the definitive collection of photographs of this vibrant suburb in Cape Town, whose destruction in terms of the apartheid 'Group Areas Act' became a symbol of the inhumanity suffered by the people of South Africa. The book attempts to reconstruct the spirit of the place from important historic photographs, some of which are published here for the first time.In February 1966, the National Party government announced that District Six was to be razed to the ground in order to make space for a new 'white area'. George Hallett and Clarence Coulson produced an intimate portrait of the area before the bulldozers came in.In the 1960s Jackie Heyns ran a weekly column in the Golden City Post called 'Aunt Sammy's', which he illustrated with his own photographs."@en ;
