Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)

One hundred years ago, the Herero people of Namibia were nearly exterminated by German colonial soldiers in what has become known as the first genocide of the 20th century.

In the colonial period, the Herero men, women and children of Namibia were rounded up like cattle and put into Germany’s first ever concentration camps. Four years later, three-quarters of the entire Herero nation had perished at the hands of German colonialists.

The Nazis used the experiences from the German Konzentration Camps in Namibia plus their experiences with racial science during the Second World War a few decades later. Today the Hereros claim billions of US dollars from the German government in genocide reparations.

    Lol. Bring it, Holocaust Deniers – deny this one too. I mean – this demonstrates all the characteristics required of a people prepared to carry out a future Holocaust in the next World War. Racial hatred/superiority, intent/capability, military concentration camps etc. Looking forward to how the Holocaust deniers will try to make the two events look mutually exclusive.

    Please – DO tell……;) Let me guess…its a Jewish DocHeaven conspiracy?

    Cheers DH ;)

      It is great to see you finally becoming receptive to the concept of having a dialogue on these matters… albeit a veiled one as you seem to prefer making sweeping statements outside of the forum that you were attempting to dominate. It is only natural to want to change tack when you find yourself backed into a corner.

      On the simplistic parallels made here between German colonialist activity in Africa and its bearing on National Socialist policy some context needs to be applied. How much of an influence did British colonialism have on its internal policies of the 1930s and 1940s?  Mike Davis, author of ‘Late Victorian Holocausts’ estimated that between 12 and 33 million avoidable deaths by famine occurred in India between 1876 and 1908. Was this at the forefront of Churchill’s mind when he pressed Arthur Harris into action against the city of Dresden, or was he more concerned with current affairs?http://www.paklinks.com/gs/world-affairs/57678-british-genocide-in-india.html Or the Belgians, who were responsible for upwards of ten million deaths in the Congo by the turn of the 20th century. Did this shape their domestic policy forty years later?

      Or the Americans?

      Or the Australians?

      The point is that any country with colonial aspirations has blood on its hands, but this undeniably callous treatment of indigenous populations can not accurately be used as some kind of premonition as to their future intentions.

        Nice work trying to link colonial aspirations of random countries, to denial of the holocaust.

      There really is evil in the world and it’s not all perpetrated by an American/ Israeli cabal as some liberal self-loathing websites would have people believe.

    This movie is a bold lie. Goering was never in Namibia. Tiny lies are scattered throughout the film. And the sinister music playing anytime a white person was on screen was pathetic. The genocide of the Herero is a tragic part of history and nothing more. It’s pathetic that the History Channel helped these people attempt to extort billions of dollars from the German government for something that has absolutely no relevance now.

    • the wise dragon

       Hey if it happened at all and I dont think this would be a bold lie then it is of relevance, in times like these when we should be looking to unite as humans, it might also be worth reflecting on injustices wrought on our fellow man simply out of greed and aspirations for wealth. Be it known that history is often written by the victor, take for example Stalin of russia, killed way more people than Hitler and he is barely mentioned as the monster he really was.
      But on that note and as an African, the Africans as a people have been continously and constantly opressed by europeans, opressed economically culturally and spiritually. This injustice still goes on till today with more modern methods such as WHO, IMF, the world bank to name but a few.
      It is all relevant, from this perspective most europeans are only interested in what they can take/gain from exploiting Africa and Africans. Even though I dont believe the named agencies represent eery european, the predominant
      motives of the greedy elite has always been the same, exploit through all means.

    Also, I’m just a little curious, if god (which in itself, is a way way outdated means of population control, after all, the earth is no longer flat is it? anyway, if god loved the people who call themselves jews SOoooooo much, Why in HELL(?) DID HE PROMISE/GIVE THEM A DESERT? WHY’D HE GIVE THE NATIVE AMERICAN A MASSIVE LUSH CONTINENT TO ROAM?

      I had to ask – lets say EVERYTHING you say about the Zionists is correct (and it seems to be…partially..reasonable)….WTF does that have to do with Holocaust denial?
