Details

‘Voetsek’ is the life story of Dr. Joe Rod. He takes readers through his experience navigating the hardships of growing up Jewish in Apartheid South Africa to a family of Holocaust victims and survivors. Intergenerational trauma and untreated mental illness in the context of a fascist, racist, and anti-semetic state laid the groundwork for a lifetime of depression, but not all was lost. ‘Voetsek’ is a personal and historical journey of a man in the pursuit of happiness. Through the power of love, perseverance, and the magic of the 1970s, Dr. Rod was able to confront and overcome much of his sorrow. His story serves as an inspiration for people in the throes of hardships both outside and within their control.
