About this site

This resource is hosted by the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, but was compiled and authored by Padraig O’Malley. It is the product of almost two decades of research and includes analyses, chronologies, historical documents, and interviews from the apartheid and post-apartheid eras.

Quick overview

     The HTML view of the Table of contents (TOC) has two parts - the upper TOC and the lower TOC.  On entering the site, only the bottom TOC is visible.  The moment you start navigating (browsing), the TOC will split into its upper and lower sections.

     Click on the yellow folder to expand a branch.  This folder moves to the upper (TOC) section and shows its branches and documents in the lower section.

     To close this branch, click on the folder above it in the upper TOC section. The folder moves back to the lower TOC section.

     Click on the underlined title text next to the folder icon to open the title document of the branch.  If the text is not underlined, there is no title document.

     If a branch does not have a yellow folder icon but a white document icon, it means there are no further branches for this entry.  Clicking on either the document icon or the title text will open up the document.
