Between 1884 and 1915, Namibia was a colony of the German Empire. As the Germans established their colonial rule, the Herero and Nama were systematically deprived of rights. Some 90,000 died as a result of forced labour, hunger and violence. Historians consider this the first genocide of the twentieth century. Since 2015, Germany and Namibia have been negotiating an official apology and reparation payments. Descendants of the Herero and Nama filed a suit in New York complaining at being excluded from the negotiations. In early March 2019, the US court rejected the claim. Nuran David Calis has worked with experts and actors to bring to life this unsettling chapter in recent German history.
