Anglo-Boer Wars


Anglo-Boer Wars
   The struggle of the Boers in southern Africa against the British imperialist annexation of the Transvaal (1880–1902) caused waves of sympathy for the Afrikaner Boers in the Netherlands. The Dutch saw in them people of a related race and victims of ruthless British imperialism, which was also feared in Europe. In 1881, the Nederlandsch Zuid-Afrikaansche Vereniging (NZAV, Netherlands South African Society) was founded in Amsterdamwith the goal of helping Afrikaners with financial and cultural aid and reinforcing the intellectual relations between the two peoples. The NZAV founded a libraryand information center in Am sterdam and publishes the monthly Zuid-Afrika.
