Separate hospitals and ambulance also.Apartheid was created in 1948. From 1948 to 1960 the policies and strategies of apartheid changed. It began as rules and regulations for example putting people into different groups based on their color and spiraled into violence, such as the massacre at Sharpsville.

The government passed laws that were more restrictive and harsh, and the movement of the African National Congress (ANC) responded with violence.
