german here, may people here know about the herero and even though it took over 100 years, in 2016 the german government finally officially recognized it as the thing it was, a genocide, which i'm very happy about, cause they deserve recognition.

This is so important tho! In private school several of my classmates often went to Africa because it was quite a hippie school, the parents were mostly very adventurous and wanted to change the world. They all came back and said that Africa is not a poor slum full of death like on TV. Its so sad that the west is only shown the bad side of this beautiful continent. I've been alive for 18 years and I have never heard of this! This is what they should show on TV, while still having focus on the poor areas of Africa. Every country and continent of the world has bad and good, I really want to see more good from Africa.

+L5940 in Denmark where I live especially, dark skinned people are thought of as poor starving dirty demi humans so the Africa we see on TV is a filthy slum of sewage and death. Its only in my teen years that I've learned how wrong the media is about Africa, especially. I don't understand your comment about how light skinned people aren't welcome, no one I knew had any problems. I'm simply saying that Africa is not what the western media says it is.

What kind of delusional image did they have about Africa? Obviously Africa has capitals, roads and some infrastructure too. its just that those of light skin are not really welcome anymore unless they give money in some parts.

How come when a white person wears dreads and braids their hair, it's considered "cultural appropriation" but when a black woman wears a dress style that came from Germany it isn't called "cultural appropriation"?

This is so sad people don't relise what colonising did to a nation and the fact the hereros are still overlooked breaks my heart so many countries deserve justice for the colonization they have faced but yet it's just another part of history people don't want to adresss and that breaks me.

Despite all the difficult things going on it is a beautiful continent with beautiful people filled with a myriad of cultures. There's so much the world needs to learn about it!

I love learning about different people/ cultures but how could ANYONE in the comment section say this makes them proud?! Europeans have influenced Africa and everywhere else they destroyed. They left death, murder, rape and disease in their trail. Africans/ African Americans pretend that we take back power from oppressors but we just play into what they have forced us into accepting. Everyone is beautiful but the reason behind this documentary is NOT!

soo I just wanted to say I've learned about it in my school not as colonial history of germany but as a genocide topic in history class. My teacher always said that even if time goes by it will always be what it is and you should know it will always effect the victims. Never asume that time will heal some wounds cause sometimes the wounds are to big to heal...I just wanted namibian people to know that in some parts of germany we are teached about it and that those who teach and are taught do feel sorry about it.

It is so ironic that I clicked on this video. I just discovered the Herero genocide a couple of days ago. They were exterminated by the Germans in concentration camps, the prototypes for the Holocaust. Shark Island was the most famous of these camps. DO NOT let this ugly piece of history be swept under the rug and forgotten.

The model looked so pretty. She actually looked like a princess. Im glad they took something so horrible like the herrero genocide and made it into something their own. The herrero genocide the catalyst for how Hitler would exterminate the jews. The herrero people were all attacked by Germans, raped, mutilated and beheaded and experimented on. They created some of the first concentration camps for them.
