Kimberley, South Africa



With the help of those who lived there, we are compiling a database of families who lived in Kimberley with their stories, biographies, pictures and reminiscences. This will of course take time.  Please click here to our questionnaire.


Please Contact Eli Rabinowitz and Geraldine Auerbach to tell them your story and sign up for the Newsletter of the Kimberley ex-pats.
