Norwegian anti-apartheid activist Inger Heldal on the exhibition to commemorate support given to African liberation movements.

The Norwegian embassy, in partnership with Lillieslief Farma and Museum, is hosting an exhibition to commemorate the support African liberation movements received from other countries.

In 1961, the African National Congress (ANC) bought Liliesleaf bought Liliesleaf in 1961 at a time when the liberation movement was experiencing increasing repression from the apartheid regime.

It became the hub for liberation activities and meetings and served as a safe house for many targeted leaders until it was raided by security police in 1963.

In 2008 it was opened up as a museum to the public and is regarded as an important South African heritage site.

Now it will host this exhibition, and Norwegian anti-apartheid activist Inger Heldal says it has been a long process to make it a success.

She says it is an interactive exhibition which will showcase different aspects of the activism that too place in Norway.

The important focus of the exhibition is very much about the engagement and solidarity of how civil society in Norway together with the state was actively involved to bringing the situation in South Africa to the attention of the youth, churches and the unions.

It's a bit emotional and strange to be here during the week that Winnie Madikizela-Mandela passed away and the commemoration of Chris Hani.
