During the struggle against apartheid in South Africa neighbouring countries supported the liberation movements and suffered intensely in consequence. This exhibition honours these countries through a selection of iconic photographs showing the devastating effect of the apartheid war in Angola, Mozambique, Namibia and Zimbabwe.  

Covering the period 1975-1994, the exhibition is a collaboration between the NMF, Zimmedia and ProGroup.
