Winburg was the site of a concentration camp for women and children captured by the British Army during their scorched earth campaign during the Second Boer War. 355 children and 132 adults died in this camp due to malnutrition and contagious diseases, while kept in tents without any infrastructure or protection during the bitter cold winters of 1899 – 1901.
Die Trekkers – onbewus daarvan dat hulle van die oewers van die Tugela bespied word – het met hulle dagtake voortgegaan. Eenuur die oggend van 17 Februarie het 10 000 Zoeloes op die Voortrekkers toegesak. Dit was donkermaan en die Trekkers het eers besef wat aangaan toe die Zoeloes tussen hulle was. Die voorste Trekkers is almal uitgemoor.
Many tens of thousands of women and children were forcibly moved into the concentration camps. The Boer War concentration camp system was the first time that a whole nation had been systematically targeted, and the first in which some whole regions had been depopulated.
