About The Author :
Joline, 56, is a secretary, turned historian, turned writer. At the age of 40-something, a visit to a museum started Joline off on a new trajectory.
The fascination led Joline to research and write historical articles, published in the Cape Argus, about the forced removals that took place in the area. Later Joline decided to study history at UCT. She has since completed a Master’s degree in Historical Studies and now works as a historian and senior researcher for South African History Online (SAHO).
