Biographical history

Benjamin Pogrund was raised in Cape Town, and began his career as a journalist in 1958, writing for The Rand Daily Mail in Johannesburg, where he eventually became deputy-editor. The Rand Daily Mail was the only newspaper in South Africa at that time to report on events in black South African townships. During the course of his work Pogrund came to know the major players in the apartheid struggle and gained the respect and confidence of various leaders and members of struggle resistance groups.

Pogrund consistently reported on Apartheid activities and was imprisoned once and considered a threat to the state. Pogrund currently lives in Israel and has published many books including a memoir of fellow human rights activist and friend Robert Sobukwe [Source:].
