Germany sued for damages of ‘forgotten genocide’ in Namibia

According to the Guardian: “Germany has been sued for damages in the United States by descendants of the Herero and Nama people of Namibia, for what they called a campaign of genocide by German colonial troops in the early 1900s that led to more than 100,000 deaths.”
