Summary: On 12 May 1883, the German flag was raised on the coast of South-West Africa, modern Namibia - the beginnings of Germany's African Empire. As colonial forces moved in, their ruthless punitive raids became an open war of extermination. By 1905, the survivors were interned in concentration camps & systematically starved & worked to death.
