Les Camps De Reconcentration

Colour photolithograph after Jean Veber, 1901 (c).

This French anti-British caricature refers to a notorious policy adopted during the Boer War (1899-1902). Concentration camps were used by the British Army to house Boer guerillas and their families. Over 20,000 of these people died from hunger and disease. The majority of inmates were people caught up in the British military drives. Both white and black people were cleared from the country to prevent Boer commandos obtaining supplies and information. The deaths provoked international outrage.
