There are some places that you wish didn't exist, but have to be there so the world won’t forget. The Slave Lodge in Cape Town, South Africa is a chilling reminder of the horrors of slavery. “From human wrongs to human rights” is its apt slogan.” The building is one of the oldest in Cape Town, and has had several uses over the years since its days as a sort of “warehouse” for trafficking slaves. The auction site is identified in a courtyard. There are also exhibit areas on the upper floor with general historical and archaeological displays not focusing on the history of slavery; and displays on human rights issues in general.
