Description

This is a small collection of works on the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa, from the collection of Lionel “Rusty” Bernstein (1920-2002), a prominent activist in the African National Congress and the South African Communist Party. Bernstein was one of Nelson Mandela’s co-defendants in the Rivonia trial in 1963, and the only one to be acquitted, after which he escaped to Britain to continue campaigning.
