A Human Being Died That Night recounts an extraordinary dialogue. Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela, a psychologist who grew up in a black South African township, reflects on her interviews with Eugene de Kock, the commanding officer of state-sanctioned death squads under apartheid. Gobodo-Madikizela met with de Kock in Pretoria's maximum-security prison, where he is serving a 212-year sentence for crimes against humanity. In profoundly arresting scenes, Gobodo-Madikizela conveys her struggle with contradictory internal impulses to hold him accountable and to forgive. Ultimately, as she allows us to witness de Kock's extraordinary awakening of conscience, she illuminates the ways in which the encounter compelled her to redefine the value of remorse and the limits of forgiveness.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Pumla Gobodo-MadikizelaPublisher: Mariner BooksPublished: 04/19/2004ISBN: 9780618446599Pages: 193Weight: 0.47lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.54w x 0.53dReview Citations: Kliatt 07/01/2004 pg. 40Essence 09/01/2004 pg. 138Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 102557 / Human Being Died That Night: A South African Story of ForgivenessReading Level: 9.6 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 9
