Book Review // After Mandela

by Jan Dirk van der Burg, Stefanie Grätz

The book contains a complete photographic inventory of places in The Netherlands named after the South Africa's first black president.

There is no living person in the Netherlands, besides the Royal family, that has so many public places named after him than Nelson Mandela. The praise and magnification are a result of the Mandela Magic, the so-called iconisation of Madiba, who became a brandname for reconciliation.
