A Very Special Comment

"The volume is wonderfully illustrated, carefully crafted and beautifully laid out. The author has a great eye for a telling image, and the presentation is excellent. "

DEPUTY DIRECTOR, Immovable Heritage

This is a very special comment on the book MKG – Mahatma Gandhi – Imaging Peace, Truth and Ahimsa as Eric Itzkin is the author of “Gandhi's Johannesburg - Birthplace of Satyagraha", a comprehensive record of the places where Mahatma Gandhi spent his early years in Johannesburg. Itzkin also painstakingly researched archives and consulted members of the local South African Indian community to put together an exhibition at the Museum Africa in the Johannesburg suburb of Newtown, where the city's first Indian settlers mainly lived at the turn of the last century.
