Synopsis
The German genocide on Ovaherero and Nama happened 110 years ago. It was acknowledged as such by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2015.The film shows drawn historic footage, which illustrates the former German perception on the Ovaherero and Nama and finally leads to the Hereroday. The genocide and the trauma of the German colonial rule are still present and influence the culture and identity of both tribes down to the present day.
