6:47 am
meetings began here in 1884. there were no representatives from the african continent. there was nobody actually, from the territories that were carved up. european nations competed with each other to grab land and resources. and so german colonies were and what us today target which includes what is today gonna come rule out what will then called germans, south africa today, libya, all of the east places experienced brutal german crony rule. germany's time as a colonial power was short, really 40 years later, it was forced to hand over its territories to the victors of world war one. but artifacts collected during that time, still fillets, museums. joshua wants them dealt with in the same way as the art stolen by the nazis already modest that in sight germany gained from that part of its history
