Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum

Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum

The Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum is situated in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa. The museum is named after the uprising which took place in 1976. Hector Pieterson was the first casualty of this, he was a young boy who was shot during the Soweto uprising. The museum was opened in 2002 in Soweto which lies South of Johannesburg and is a township which was developed during the apartheid era. The museum is a reminder of the tragic event that took place on the 16th June. Today South Africa remembers that day on the 16th June as "national youth day". There is footage of the uprising at the museum as well as many other artefacts from the era. This is a very interesting and informative visit. Be sure not to miss it.
