Sandra Prosalendis, former Director of the District Six Museum.
The District Six Museum has broken with the traditional ideas of museums and collecting. It has created and implemented the concept of an interactive public space where it is the people's response to District Six that provides the drama and the fabric of the museum.

There is something about walking into that old, wooden-ceilinged church, where the descendants of slaves used to worship and sing and talk, that brings oppression, genocide and redemption into a single space that my mind can take hold of, without being overwhelmed. The tobacco-stained detail of Welcome Dover stoves and a mother's doek and her hand in her armpit as she tries to come to terms with the death of her son in another act of Cape violence, deliberate or accidental.

Cape Town and Ireland have so many similarities in love and hate. Help to reclaim the spirit of one community.
In solidarity, Arial Dorfman, Chile.
The past is not easily erased. After the Nazi's destroyed Warsaw the Polish people rebuilt the city as it had been. Let us hope you can also reconstruct this District where you used to live in peace.
