Sentrale Volksmonumentkomitee (SVK)


The SVK was established on 4 April 1931 by the Federasie van Afrikaanse Kultuurvereniginge (FAK) at a congress in Bloemfontein under the chairmanship of EG Jansen with the aim to build a meaningful monument in Pretoria to the Voortrekkers by the time of the centenary of the Great Trek. GLP MOERDYK, who designed the Voortrekker Monument, was a member of the SVK.
