Abstract

During the Anglo-Boer War a large number of Natal Afrikaner men were imprisoned, initially as suspected rebels, but in time as convicts, found guilty of high treason and / or theft. In this article the prison experiences of the Natal Afrikaner rebels are investigated. Aspects that are illuminated include general living conditions, food, the utilisation of free time and contact with the outside world. Furthermore, emphasis is placed on the relationships between the prisoners, as well as with the authorities.


Tydens die Anglo-Boereoorlog het groot getalle Natalse Afrikanermans in die tronk beland, aanvanklik as verdagte rebelle, maar later as veroordeeldes, skuldig aan hoogverraad en / of diefstal. In hierdie artikel word die belewenisse van die Natalse Afrikanerrebelle in die tronk ondersoek. Aspekte wat onder die soeklig kom, sluit onder andere in algemene lewenstoestande, kos, vrytetydsbesteding en kontak met die buitewêreld. Daar word verder klem gelê op die verhoudings tussen die veroordeeldes onderling asook met die owerheid.
