APARTHEID – Population and policies: The separation of the races in apartheid South Africa was possibly most dramatically illustrated by this hospital – the Baragwanath Hospital – on the south-western outskirts of Johannesburg. It was large and well-equipped, but it was solely for non-whites. An African hit by a car outside Johannesburg’s white-only general hospital could not be admitted to it, but would have had to have been brought here instead.
