Sarah Baartman, at rest at last

Sarah Baartman, displayed as a freak because of her unusual physical features, was finally laid to rest 187 years after she left Cape Town for London. Her remains were buried on Women’s Day, 9 August 2002, in the area of her birth, the Gamtoos River Valley in the Eastern Cape.

Cash boost for Baartman memorial

A centre of remembrance will be built in the Eastern Cape, near the grave of Saartjie Baartman – because “her story is the story of the world. The memory of Sarah Baartman is the memory of the world”.
