Caring for the apartheid records that survived
'Irreplaceable archives are disappearing'
Between 1996 and 1998 the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) undertook
an investigation into the destruction of records by the apartheid state. It
discovered that a massive destruction exercise, authorised at the highest

document substantial accumulations of security records that had survived this
devastating erasure of state memory resources.
