In a country that is often praised for its willingness to face up to the past, why do we hear so little about Germany’s colonial history? Rachel takes a look at the German colonial empire – where were the German colonies, what happened there and what consequences can we still see today?
From the Herero and Nama genocide to the debate around looted artifacts in German museums and galleries – there is a lot to unpack in this episode of Meet the Germans.
Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés, traditions and history for the Meet the Germans series. Check out the full playlist here: https://bit.ly/MtG_YouTubePlaylist
