Lizzie van Zyl, a Boer girl, who died in the British Bloemfontein concentration camp in South Africa during the 2nd Boer War (1899-1902). It was estimated that 27,927 Boer (of whom 22,074 were children under 16) and 14,154 black Africans died of starvation, disease and exposure in these camps preceding the Nazi ones by 37 years.

Women and children of burghers in the field were labeled "Undesirables" treated much worse than those of men who had surrendered.
