Between Life and Death: Stories from John Vorster Square

Between Life and Death: stories from John Vorster Square is a virtual walk through the police cells on the 10th floor of South Africa's most notorious police station, where the security force reigned in apartheid South Africa.

Commissioned by SAHA as part of the Sunday Times Heritage Project and filmed by Craig Matthews of Doxa Productions, the DVD features interviews with former detainees and security police as well as photographs, press clippings, drawing and other archival materials.

Copies of the DVD are distributed to schools, educational and heritage organisations at various events and workshop.

Contents of this DVD are now featured on the new Google site, the 'Google Cultural Institute' website.
