This book is a collection of interviews with South Africans - most of them prominent and all of them Jewish - who fought against institutionalised racism in South Africa. The compelling interviews reveal the inner world of people whose lives were shaped by opposition politics, underground activity, jail, exile, grass roots activism or cross-cultural innovation. Denis Goldberg, Helen Suzman, Ronnie Kasrils, Gill Marcus, Johnny Clegg and Albie Sachs - to name a few - recall formative experiences, trials and triumphs. They discuss their personal identities, what being Jewish has meant to them, and how it has impacted on their unfolding lives.
