Veber worked at a time when anglophobia was prevalent in France, but the behaviour of the British army in the Transvaal during the Boer war gave him ample material to work with. He was particularly scathing of the 'reconcentration camps' they created, and was quick to contrast his brutal images with the misleading words of the British leaders. The first image is of a Boer woman with raised fists surrounded by dead/dying children. Translated: "... The precautionary measures we have taken have lowered the mortality of children to 380 per thousand." On the reverse side are two images titled "Les Acheteur de Biens" (Buyer of Goods). Translated: "Any confiscated farm is immediately sold and easily finds a new owner who is quick to take possession of his new property." |~CSV~||~CSV~|200|~CSV~|Anglo-Boer War|~CSV~||~CSV~|d|~CSV~|Anglo-Boer War;Cartoon|~CSV~||~CSV~|150|~CSV~|France|~CSV~||~CSV~|Print|~CSV~||~CSV~||~CSV~||~CSV~|24cm x 32cm|~CSV~|N|~CSV~||~CSV~|N|~CSV~|Jean Veber|~CSV~||~CSV~|N|~CSV~||~CSV~|Cartoon
