This day in 1904: the Herero people in former South West Africa (current day Namibia) formally rise up against German colonisers. 123 Germans were killed and in response the European colonisers orchestrated the full scale decimation of the Herero, woen and children included. Last year the German government considered making a formal apology to the Herero, but the prospect of cash reparations remains extremely dim. Let us remember. #herero #namibia #genocide #colonisation #history #africanhistory #africa #remember #germany
