Nelson Mandela’s story seized center stage during the historic Rivonia trial in 1963 and 1964. But there were eight others who, like him, faced the death sentence. To a man they stood firm and turned the tables on the state: just as they were on trial, so too was Africa’s apartheid regime. Recently recovered archival recordings of those hearings transport us back into the thick of the courtroom battles. At the center of the trial was hawkish state prosecutor Percy Yutar, a brilliant legal mind, whose Jewish origins were put to dubious purposes in the courtroom.
