Abstract

Relations between Namibia and its former coloniser, Germany, are impacted by ongoing negotiations about reparations for a brutal and violent past. The 1904-8 genocide that decimated large parts of the indigenous population continues to cast a shadow in the present. One overlooked aspect, writes Tycho van der Hoog, is the Namibian book market, where German-Namibian publishing houses perpetuate a whitewashed version of history.
