Freedom Park

Interesting
This vast architectural complex, initiated by President Thabo Mbeki and designed by poet Mongane Wally Serote, stands on a hilltop as a symbolic and democratic response to the Voortrekker Monument. It pays tribute to the victims of all the conflicts that have afflicted South Africa from pre-colonial times to the present. A special section is devoted to foreigners, including Che Guevara and Toussaint Louverture.
