The Second Boer War took place between 1899 to 1902 between the South African Republic and the Orange Free State and the British Kingdom. Immediate cause of the war was the many years’ tension between the Dutch farmers and the British after the First Boer War. It ended in favour of the British Republic and the end of Transvaal as an independent state. In this war 80,000 lives were lost; mostly women and children who died in concentration camps.
