  1. dear jane,

    we are preparing a small non-profit exhibition on german street names still hounoring colonial pioneers as lüderitz, peters etc. We are proposingec better names to the public like the one of cornelius fredericks who fought a just war against german colonialism or the one of anna mungunda, who lost her life demonstrating against the apartheid-system. Would you be so nice to grant us the right to show your picture of fredericks’ memorial stone on shark island? And if so, could you send us a high resolution copy of it?

    Thank you very much for your support

    Yours Christian

    Try and get the facts right: At that time it was Deutsch-Südwest-Afrika and not South West Africa as stated in your story. It only became a British Protectorate after WW1.

      You should also get your facts right:it was never a British protectorate,but a League of Nation’s C Mandate. Full stop!

  3. Thanks to Johan for pointing out this important fact.  Sorry about the error.

      Original statement was not an error. South West Africa is simply the English translation of “Suewest-Afrika,” nothing more. And original article said nothing about it being a British protectorate. This is wrong anyway; it was a South African protectorate after the war, not British

    THE BRUTAL GERMAN OCCUPIERS LEFT A TRAIL OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION AS THEY DECIMATED THE LOCAL POPULATION – they learnt well from the early americans, australians, portuguese,spaniards, dutch etc. didn’t they.

  6. Dear Jane,

    I am carrying out an internship with the non-profit Museums Association of Namibia now. We are producing a mobile exhibition on the Namibian genocide which will travel around the country from August to December, and one panel features the monument landscape across Namibia with respect to the genocide. Can you please give us permission to use your close-up photograph of the Cornelius Frederick monument on Shark Island? Or perhaps send an uncompressed version of that photo?

    Thanks in advance.
