Salma Mohammed: stolen home


Production by Lameez Khumalo
The Group Areas act of 1950 affected the lives of many South Africans. People of colour lost their homes resulting in a great deal of displacement across the country. This video delves deeper into a personal story about the day my great grandfather lost his farm and shopand how it affected our family.

I have had to use archive footage to tell the story because all the photos of my grandmother growing up were lost the day they took my great grandfathers farm. Till this day my grandmother is haunted by the pain caused by the loss of her home. This heart wrenching story is just one glimpse into what living in South Africa was like, during the Apartheid era.
