Abstract

The courage and resilience of women forced to live in concentration camps during the Second Boer War is quite well documented, but perhaps equally remarkable is the story of some 600 Boer families who relocated to Patagonia in Argentina after the war, and had to adapt to yet another way of life. One of the women who moved there with what remained of her family in 1905 describes in these, her memoirs, her life first in the Bethulie concentration camp in what is now the Free State, and then in the Chubut province on the east coast of Patagonia, where she lived for some 34 years.
