In A Duty of Memory, Botha writes about the burdens of the past, and how they impact the Hartzenbergs – the family at the center of the story. Ultimately, this is a book about the effects of violence and intolerance on a people and a country as a whole. In the end, the Hartzenbergs are the tragic victims of society’s refusal to let go of the past. Their lives and family are torn apart as a result.
