In rural South Africa the far-right Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB) is training thousands of white youth for a war between the races with military-style bootcamps where the Hunger Games meets Hitler Youth.
“God, our people, and Fatherland”. This, according to the Bernard family, is what the AWB stands for. A deeply religious family, they form part of the small but determined minority of Afrikaner people who still wear their apartheid-era politics on their sleeve. Now for the first time their 15-year-old son Sparky will attend Kommando core, an AWB ‘endurance’ camp for white youngsters. By day, the young attendees are pushed to their physical limits, while by night they are subjected to lectures on white supremacy, sowing the seeds of old hatreds in a new generation. “Burn, bastard burn”, they chant as they set alight the South African flag.
