I hope this audience will forgive me if I take a leaf from David Tidy’s book and explain how I came to be involved with the RAF. The answer is simple-I joined the Service to carry out National Service which was required at that time. Psychoanalysts have often rejected the concept of forgiveness as unanalytic, but the capacity for forgiveness remains a quality that is valued by our patients and by society at large.

Comments to eBook A Human Being Died That Night: A South African Story of Forgiveness
Kanek
Interesting read but I wanted more about what De Kock had to say rather than the constant intermittent blurbs about what the author felt about random spaces in time. In fact the author's input as to her feelings were often distracting and took away from what I was hoping to get from the book. Glad I read it though.

Wonderful and touching story and well written.
Zargelynd
What insight
Nea
I was born at the same time as the author, however as a middle class White, English speaking citizen who was politically aware and supported and worked for the official opposition - the Progressive Party and then the Democratic Party, I was completely in the dark as to the full horror of what the government was perpetrating in the name of all the Whites. This book is so interesting and so full of wisdom. It tries to make some sense of the times we lived through and the beliefs which led some people to such evil. A very good read, but remember, there were some of us who did not support Apartheid, but fought for a changed political system within the law and the moral code.

Great book. It worked great for my humanities class. Really enjoyed the story of empathy and forgiveness.

Great read for anyone, goes into forgiveness and compares the apartheid South Africa to nazi Germany which was interesting. Well written and easy to understand, thought-provoking
Asher
Excellent first-hand account by a woman intimately involved with horror, honor, and intractable questions of forgiveness in one of the worst periods of the last century.
Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela skillfully weaves information about the horrors of the Apartheid's fight against equality for the black community and a impelling argument to choose reconciliation rather than revenge.
