The web page below intends to provide a appropriate and future orientated contribution towards the commemoration of the colonial wars and the genocide in Namibia.
'Remembering 1904’ collects information about events, contains a list of experts for journalists, displays pictures of the war and includes an extended literature- and link list.
Main focus of the web page is the 'forum’ which allows the user to voice his opinion and ask questions. Besides the ‚forum’ the users have the possibility to give their input by announcing their events and supplement the bibliography and the list of experts: 'Remembering 1904’ is primarily an information market.
In addition to the English and German language version, the Ojieherero-language version will offer excess to those users who prefer to deal with this sensitive subject in their mother tongue. 'Remembering 1904’ is the first web page who offers pages in Ojieherero.
So far the events preview of 'Remembering 1904’ is the most extended dealing with the subject. We hope that the 'forum’ will be equally successful and that 'Remembering 1904’ will contribute to a widespread public discussion.
