Robben Island


Robben Island

During the apartheid years, Robben Island became internationally known for its institutional brutality. The duty of those who ran Robben Island and the Robben Island prison was to isolate opponents of apartheid and to crush their morale. Some freedom fighters spent more than a quarter of a century in prison on Robben Island for their beliefs. Former South African President, Nelson Mandela served 27 years on this island during the Apartheid years.
