The commemoration of the Centenary of the WWI Battle of Delville Wood (France) in South Africa will take place on Tuesday 14 June 2016 at the Durban Holocaust Centre.

As part of the remembrance of the Delville Wood battle, the French Institute of South Africa, the Alliance Française network in Southern Africa, the Goethe Institut and the South African Holocaust & Genocide Foundation are organising a series of events to commemorate the Union of South Africa’s engagement in the First World War.

Playwright and director Sylvaine Strike has created a performance alongside an exciting young cast to poetically convey the experience of young men who volunteered to be sent to the European battlefront, as well as the feelings back home in South Africa, a country geographically remote from the worst horrors of WWI.

Join us at the Durban Holocaust Centre on Tuesday 14 to commemorate the Centenary of the WWI Battle of Delville Wood (France) in South Africa.

Refreshments and snacks will be served after the performance.
