The assassin : a story of race and rage in the land of apartheid by Henk van Woerden( Book )

"If ever one individual could be said to have embodied the tragedy of apartheid, Dimitri Tsafendas would be that man. At a time in South Africa when color was all, Tsafendas, bastard son of a Greek father and African mother, was untouchable - too black for the whites and too white for the blacks. Stateless, homeless, and loveless, on September 6, 1966, Tsafendas entered South Africa's parliament and stabbed Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd four times with a long knife, killing the architect of apartheid, the architect of his misery." "Now, forty years later, in a masterful restoration, Henk Van Woerden re-creates the assassin's cursed life and the impossibly torn society that created him. Unwanted by black or white family, denied the right to settle wherever he turns, Tsafendas drifts from sea to prison, from kitchen hand to street vendor to blood donor, from Mozambique to Egypt, Greece, Canada, and back to the Cape. With sensitivity and passion, Van Woerden traces the inexorable road that leads to Verwoerd's killing and reveals that the assassination - a resounding blow in the war against apartheid - was not the random act of a crazed individual, but perhaps the only choice left in a country itself gone mad."--Jacket
