    Have apologised for the genocide they carried out in Namibia

    report on radio over the caper

    apparently it was the 20th centuries first genocide ???

    the German bloke who was in charge out there at the time gave a written order to wipe out several tribes the actual doc actually exists

    apparently they had concentration camps carried out human medical experiments
    Dissected them and sent the parts back to Germany for medical study

    blimey I thought all that sort of thing only started with hitler

    Germany is to pay a billion squid to Namibia

    Concentration camps were first used in the 19th century by us in Africa if I remember right. I have no idea if we did any medical experiments though. It wouldn't surprise me, the idea of experimenting on prisoners crops up to this day.

    according to the radio report they were more extermination camps

    medical experiments and dissection were the norm

    the actual policy of the Germans in Namibia was genocide apparently all the documentation for this policy is in a botswana musemn ??

    I knew about that years ago .....they shipped a lot of them to a peninsula I believe, to starve them to death.

    The Belgian King was another despot

    Some of these European countries have got a lot to answer for, probably more than Albion.

    Why the obsess about dates? You think the Holocaust will be old news anytime soon? The British are no better or worse than any other country regards wars and their atrocities.

    The British empire did some pretty terrible things but I don't know if there were any deliberate attempts at Genocide or Ethnic cleansing in the 19th century or later. Most of our atrocities were more due to lack of thoughtor caring than deliberate action.

    We killed a large number of people in concentration camps during the second Boer war, but that was because we didn't care enough to feed them, or allow proper hygiene or medical care rather than wanting to exterminate them. And to our credit we did start providing better care to our prisoners after the public found out how bad it was.
