Description DM2002071201:SAED:SOCIAL:APARTHEID:MAY1960 - Sharpeville Funeral - More than five thousand people were at the graveyard. They had come from many places to pay their last respects at the funeral of 34 of the people who died at Sharpville. The coffins are laid out in a long, dark row, and a mass of mourners swell round. They are all the same, the coffins, except one, which is painted white and is carrying the body of a child. A voice breaks the silence. "The Lord has given, and the Lord has taken away," the Rev. Z. M. Voyi, of the Anglican Church, intones. (Photograph by Peter Magubane BAHA)
