NUH-MI-BEE-UHN: Germany's Forgotten Genocide in South West Africa – Film Screening, Q&A and Art Exhibition

Kavena Hambira’s film draws together personal and historical contexts about Germany’s colonial history in today’s Namibia from the 19th to early 20th century. The presentation also includes an art exhibition, an otjikaiva, a Victorian-style hat like those worn by nineteenth-century German missionaries but made of Namibian fabrics—an important sign of cultural identity for the Herero in resistance to the history of the genocide.

The otjikaiva will be on display in the Hollander Hall first floor lobby until mid January.
