Nelson Mandela at the launch of the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory

"Today we are launching the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory Project. We want it to be part of what we have called the processes of restoration and reconciliation… It is our hope that it will grow into a vibrant public resource offering a range of services from these small beginnings to South Africans and visitors from all parts of the world… And most importantly, we want it to dedicate itself to the recovery of memories and stories suppressed by power. That is the call of justice: the call that must be the project’s most shaping influence."
