Description Institutional/Public Performance Rights
One hundred years ago, the Herero people of Namibia were nearly exterminated by German colonial soldiers in what has become known as the first genocide of the 20th century. Herero men, women and children were rounded up like cattle and put into Germany's first ever concentration camps. Four years later, three-quarters of the entire Herero nation had perished at the hands of German colonialists.
The Nazis used the experiences from the German concentration camps in Namibia as well as their experiments in "racial science" when they formulated the Final Solution during World War II a few decades later. Today the Hereros claim billions of euros from the German government in repatriation for the genocide.

The experience of one family is described by a descendant, a 23-year-old Herero woman named Georgina. She has a fair complexion and a green tinge to her eyes. Georgina is aware of the fact that her great-grandmother was raped by a German soldier and now wants to confront the demons of her own genetic past.
