Plett remembers its ‘personal’ fire

Compared to the 100s of affected families in Knysna and surrounds, the damage of lost lives and houses may seem negligible, but the people of Plettenberg Bay were no less traumatised after the fires of June 7 & 8 last year, and paid tribute to this reality during a commemoration on Central Beach last Thursday. These photos by Martin Hurwitz captures the mood perfectly.
