TRC Multimedia Report

The South African History Archive (SAHA) is proud to announce the launch of the SAHA / SABC Truth Commission Special Report Multimedia Product (see invitation below), featuring the Truth Commission Special Report television series, which has been brought out of the archives and repackaged as an interactive product to make the work of the TRC more accessible. The series, which documented the testimonies being heard at TRC hearings across South Africa, provided context, perspective and analysis of what emerged during these proceedings and serve as a powerful window into the conflicts of the past and ongoing challenges for reconciliation in South Africa. The product is aimed at supporting history, heritage and reconciliation education, outreach initiatives, as well as the emerging field of transitional justice, in the wake of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

Thanks to funding received from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, SAHA has a small number of the product available for distribution free of charge to South African university libraries and non-profit organisations working in the transitional justice field. If you would like to request a copy of the product for your university library or for your organisation, please email with the relevant contact details, and information on how the product would be used to support education and outreach at your organisation.
