Visitors to the Voortrekker Monument watch as a ray of sunlight shines on the unmarked tomb in the basement of the monument during Day of Reconciliation celebrations in Pretoria. Under apartheid, the day was known as Day of the Vow, in commemoration of a promise Voortrekkers made to God to build a church should they be granted victory against attacking Zulus, but under democracy the day is used to foster reconciliation and national unity.
