Boer hero Emily Hobhouse (9 April 1860 – 8 June 1926), a British welfare campaigner who is primarily remembered for bringing to the attention of the British public, and working to change, the deprived conditions inside the British concentration camps in South Africa built for Boer women and children during the Anglo Boer War. Her ashes are buried in the National Women's Memorial in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Although she was a British citizen, Emily Hobhouse has become an honorary South African through her selfless and courageous actions, which exposed the inhumanity of concentration camps during the Anglo-Boer war Fantastiese Vroumens!
