From 1904 to 1908, in what is now Namibia, the German colonial government systematically killed approximately 80,000 Herero and Nama people. More than a century later, Germany at last acknowledged this massacre as genocidal, but still refuses to apologize directly to descendants of survivors or provide reparations for harm done.

Join us for a screening of Nuh-Mi-Bee-Uhn, by Kavena Hambira, an artist, scholar, and descentant of Herero survivors of Germany’s first 20th-century genocide. The screening will be followed by a discussion between Hambira and Miriam Gleckman-Krut, a Jewish sociologist who lost family in the Holocaust, about the interconnections between the Kaiser’s genocide in southern Africa and the Nazi Holocaust in Europe.

(Not Rated)

Admission is free, but reservations are recommended.

Sponsored by the Colby College Department of Jewish Studies with the support of the Berger Family Holocaust Fund.
