Ahmed Timol: a quest for justice An exhibition at the Apartheid Museum Opening Saturday 1 August 2015
The detention and subsequent death of Ahmed Timol while under security police interrogation in October 1971 had an important influence on the new political radicalism developing in Johannesburg at the time. Some of the details are set out in pages 66-72 of The New Radicals. A generational memoir of the 1970s, and in the archival section of this website.
An exhibition on Timol's life and times opens at the Apartheid Museum on Saturday 1 August 2015.
