What Lies Beneath

The huge Gariep Dam (in South Africa) hides a concentration camp built by the British during the Boer War (1899-1902). Thousands of women and children died in these notorious 'camps' set up with the approval of the Royal Family, to force the farmers to surrender and hand over their country. Maybe that's why they sing: 'God save the Queen'.
