Mama Namibia

Mama Namibia Free read Ý 2 Review Mama Namibia Rica Since the Herero would rather fight than surrender their ancestral homes Gen von Trotha has declared that they all should be forced into the Omaheke to die Wasting awa. Although I initially struggled to get into this book for my personal lack of knowledge on Namibian historical facts I found it profoundly engaging and an absolute masterpiece It describes Herero and Jewish traditions in a beautiful religious parallel where the ancestors are central to the essence of these two peoples during Germany s occupation of South West Africa What the Germans did in this land is truly horrific the repeated history of brutal colonisers regardless of their nationality claiming the land for a superior race I did not know about the Herero Genocide and I must thank the author for her outstanding research enabling me and other readers hopefully to unearth this from a not so distant path I particularly commend the author for the different use of linguistic styles to show the evolution of the central Herero character Jahorora from baby girl in her village amidst the Herero tribes to woman at the service of a Christian family Kov s parallel life in Germany his religious background and his experience in the German army as a doctor are seen through the eyes at first of a young idealist and then through the eyes of a grown man a brilliantly described evolution I could nt hold back the tears at the end

Mama Namibia Free read Ý 2 Review Mama Namibia Y in the desert Jahohora is about to give up her desperate struggle for life when she finds hope in a simple act of kindness from a Jewish doctor serving in the German army. At this time when the memory of the Rwandan genocide is celebrated and when Burkina Faso where I live is being confronted for the first time in its history by ethnic violence and mass atrocities reading Mama Namibia feels awkwardly closeThe genocide of the Herero and the Nama perpetrated by the Germans was not unknown to me but this novel brought many insights It is probably one of the topics fiction is better in dealing with than non fiction I liked the way Serebrov depicted the cultural traditions and values of the proud Herero people their relation to the land the ancestors and their pacific tendencies I also did like the parallel drawn between the persecutions of Jews and the extermination of Herero This first genocide of the 20th century truly was only a repetition of the system of destruction that would be put in place in the second world warMore than 50 years after decolonization it is about time for former colonial powers to recognize the mass human suffering caused and to stop pretending being innocent and benevolent
