Genocide in German South-West Africa: the Colonial War (1904-1908) in Namibia and its aftermath
The 1904 war that broke out in present day Namibia after the Herero tribe rose against an oppressive colonial regime—and the German army’s brutal suppression of that uprising—are the focus of this collection of essays. Exploring the annihilation of both the Herero and Nama people, this selection from prominent researchers of German imperialism considers many aspects of the war and shows how racism, concentration camps, and genocide in the German colony foreshadow Hitler’s Third Reich war crimes.
