About this book:

Sunday, 9 November 1952. It should be remembered as a day of infamy but few know of a brutal massacre when police opened fire on people at an ANC Youth League event in Duncan Village in East London. In the cover-up that followed, the real facts of this tragedy were almost lost to history – and focus shifted to the death of an Irish nun, Sister Aidan, a doctor who ran a clinic in Duncan Village. Bloody Sunday pieces together what was one of the most devastating massacres of the apartheid era.
