Shared history? Tansanisch-deutsche Kolonialgeschichte und Erinnerungskultur

Thu, 09/27/2018 - 09:03

Eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit der Kolonialgeschichte findet in Deutschlands Öffentlichkeit und Politik bisher nur unzureichend statt. Viele wissen nichts oder nur sehr wenig über diese Zeit gewalttätiger Expansion Deutschlands, des kolonialen Unrechts und des Widerstands dagegen. Sie haben noch nie von Ostafrika als Kriegsschauplatz des Ersten Weltkrieges gehört und nichts von den Leiden derer, die im Gebiet des heutigen Tansanias unter dem deutschen Kolonialregime leben mussten.
