The remarkable Hidden in Silence is based on the true life events of the 13 member Diamant family who were hid in the attic of two Polish orphans during the Holocaust and has been described as heart-breaking and inspiring as Schindler’s List.
It is the winner of the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Original Long Form – Television and tells of the orphaned Catholic sisters Stefania and Helena Podgorska, ages 16 and 9, who hid the Diamant family in the attic of their home during World War 2. Stefania had worked in the Diamant family’s grocery store before the Nazi invasion of Poland.
While some stand silent, Stefania (portrayed by ER’s Kellie Martin) chooses the role of a saviour and sneaks 13 Jews into her attic. Every day, she risks detection – and immediate execution – by smuggling food and water to the silent group living above her. And when two German nurses are assigned to her living quarters, the chances of discovery become dangerously high. This is the true story of a young woman’s selfless commitment and unwavering resolve in the face of war. The Diamants remained in the attic for two-and-a-half years and survived the Holocaust.

Durban – The SAPS has to pay more than R1.2 million to compensate an Umhlanga car dealership after an out-of-the-box Jaguar was written off in an accident caused by a policeman.
The black Jaguar F type, V8 SC was the launch vehicle of the model which was being introduced in South Africa at the time. It was valued at more than R1.3 million, but, after the accident – which occurred on the N3 near the Spaghetti Junction a Sunday afternoon in July 2013 – it was sold for scrap for R112 000 and Jaguar Umhlanga sued the minister of police and the policeman for the balance.
In the recent trial before Durban High Court Judge Themba Sishi, the driver, Trevor Clack, employed as the dealership’s brand manager, said he was taking the car on a test drive before the launch in the coming week.
“The sky was blue and the visibility was clear,” he said.
As he passed The Pavilion Shopping Centre, he changed lanes from the extreme right-hand one to the middle one.

Gulam Bodi’s downfall as match-fixer was orchestrated by a carefully planned trap set by Cricket South Africa’s anti-corruption unit and his former teammate, Alviro Petersen.
Petersen, the latest and most high-profile player to be linked with the match-fixing scandal in the Ram Slam tournament that rocked South African cricket, revealed this in an interview with Rapport newspaper.
His Lions teammates Thami Tsolekile and Lonwabo Tsotsobe, who haven’t played cricket since the scandal came to light, have also been linked with the investigation into the matter.
Bodi was banned in January from cricket for 20 years after admitting guilt to a charge of corruption. CSA have subsequently refused to make public any more details of what transpired until the investigation has been concluded.
Petersen told Rapport how he came to be involved in the scandal, despite being asked by CSA not to divulge any information for now, but Petersen told the newspaper he feels his reputation and future are on the line.

City of Cape Town staff are collecting thousands of dead carp in one section of Zeekoevlei. The City warns residents not to eat the fish and urges members of the public to stay clear of the area while the fish are being collected. Read more below:
It is estimated that approximately 5 000 individual fish or 6 to 7 tons of fish have died of suspected natural causes. More bodies are being discovered as the fish bloat and rise to the surface.
Fish kills, which refer to a localised die-off of fish populations, often occur at this time of the year with the change of seasons when water levels are low and temperatures are high. Fish sometimes become stressed during breeding and they may pass on infectious disease due to the grouping of large numbers of adult fish together.

The Springbok Sevens defeated New Zealand 14-7 in their Cup quarterfinal match on Sunday morning at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas to book a semi-final showdown with Australia at the USA event.

Senatla has now scored nine tries in four matches at the three-day tournament, which is the fifth stop on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series circuit.
The other semi-final will be contested between the USA and Fiji, who currently share a three way tie on top of the World Series standings with South Africa and New Zealand.

Vodacom Bulls end six-match losing run
It was a pleasant weekend for South Africa’s Vodacom Super Rugby franchises with four of the five teams in action winning their respective matches in a rewarding second round.
The Emirates Lions delivered a solid performance all around to earn a famous 36-32 victory against the Chiefs on tour, which marked their first win in Hamilton since the competition’s inception. The victory also marked back-to-back wins for the Johannesburg team in the 2016 edition of the Vodacom Super Rugby competition and their fourth consecutive overseas victory in the tournament.
In Pretoria the Vodacom Bulls registered a rewarding 45-25 victory against the Rebels at Loftus Versfeld as they outscored the visitors six tries to four. While coach Nollis Marais and his team will be disappointed about allowing their tries bonus point to slip away after leading 42-3 in the second half, the win was significant as it ended a six-match losing streak for the side.
