Subject: RE: BS: Brits on Titanic die of niceness
It's a pity the British weren't so nice a few years earlier in South Africa Keith. Here Kitchener started concentration camps in South Africa. By destroying crops, livestock and farmsteads under the 'Scorched Earth' policy the Boer fighters were deprived of supplies and shelter.It also left the women and children on such farms destitute and they were forcibly removed, against their will, to the camps where thousands died of disease and starvation. A great shame on the British, then again this is nothing new.
