Although a great number of foreigners fought on the Boer side, little is known about the role Jews played during the Anglo-Boer War. The aim of this article is primarily to highlight the situation Jews in South Africa found themselves in at the time, and the dilemma they were confronted with: namely either to be loyal to the British Empire or alternatively to be loyal to their adopted country. Certain case studies are highlighted where Jews fought bravely as ""Boere-Jode"" in the fight for freedom of the republics, and distinguished themselves as Boer soldiers in an exceptional way.
