A PLACE IN THE SUN – 110 YEARS AFTER THE GENOCIDE [PLATZ AN DER SONNE – 110 JAHRE NACH DEM VÖLKERMORD]


Germany/Namibia 2018 20 min Otjiherero original version with English subtitles
German premiere

by Christian Zipfel

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.
