  • Profile

    Located at the entrance of the Groote Kerk, see the memorial that marks the spot where slaves would wait under a ‘slave tree’ while their owners attended church. In the square is a statue of parliamentarian Jan Hendrik Hofmeyr, who attempted to have Dutch recognised as a language equal to English in the 1910 constitution and a monument commemorating slavery.
