"This apartheid thing will divide our country," Jan's father would say. "Here we sit, at the tip of the continent. We have strategic dominance over the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. This is 1948! We have to join the rest of the world! We cannot hide from change. We have become a country of struggle, conflict, and survival. Just look at the problem the people of Israel is having with its independence. They will one day rise and fight for their freedom and the whole world will take notice and recognized them."
Jan was young and immature enough to resent the outside world's meddling in his country's affairs. His family was one of the first of the Dutch who had settled South Africa beginning in 1652. Starting at the Cape of Good Hope, the Dutch spread deep into the interior. Jan's ancestors were familiar with fighting the blacks, although each group wanted the same thing: to live undisturbed in its accustomed manner. Fierce battles between the Zulu warriors and the Dutch settlers erupted over territory, which each had claimed.
