Life on the Inside
20 years ago, South Africa was on the cusp of a momentous change. Parliament moved to constitutionally dismantle Apartheid, and Nelson Mandela received the Nobel Peace Prize. While the world celebrated the rise of South Africa’s Rainbow Nation, a small group of white Afrikaners went into retreat. They settled in an abandoned stretch of desert in the Northern Cape and began building a community that would preserve the values of a divided South Africa.
They called their community Orania, the town where Apartheid survived.
