Overview

The Report of the Truth and Reconciliation of South Africa is one of the most significant documents of our time. Compiled from the evidence of over 20,000 witnesses, the Report represents the record of thirty-four years under apartheid, breaking the terrible silence that surrounded so many gross violations of human rights committed during those years. It contains lessons for the international community, describing the violence and pain that is the unavoidable result of oppression and abuse, and the moral corruption of a society that turns its face away from human rights. The Findings and Recommendations of the Commission constitute not only an inquest on the past, but point the way to a just society.
